We’re so excited to have Doug Woolverton play for us next week at the Chicago Tribute show. (April 7!) We’re glad to see excitement has spread to the West Central Tribune and their feature on Doug and the upcoming performance…
Woolverton is a 1999 graduate of the Lac qui Parle Valley High School in rural Madison.
It’s where he said a lot of good things happened to him that played a very big role in making his career as a professional trumpet player possible.
“I didn’t realize how much I had learned naturally just living in such a great place,” said Woolverton in a recent telephone interview. The small town values of working hard to succeed and being nice to others, which he acquired while living in Minnesota, helped him create his career as a professional musician, according to Woolverton.
And of course, the people he came to know on the Minnesota prairie also played a big role in shaping this career, he said.
