Doug Dye & Ted Pollard
Doug Dye and Ted Pollard are veteran musicians who have both been full timers. We believe that we bring something different than most duos. We decided to choose our covers very carefully, avoiding the cliche songs every band plays. We approach covers to make them suit OUR strengths, not forcing ourselves to do things we aren’t naturally inclined to do.
