Doc joined the Heritage Ensemble (Northern Sky’s predecessor troupe) 50 years ago this fall and has been onstage here almost every year since. He’s written or cowritten 20 shows (including Belgians in Heaven and Packer Fans from Outer Space, both with Lee Becker and James Kaplan). This summer he’s releasing Tangled in Wonder, a book of almost 60 original songs, and appears July 24 at Door Community Auditorium for a 70th Birthday Bash featuring his songs performed by 15+ friends from Northern Sky.
