FOLK: Modern Folk, COUNTRY: Country Folk

Katherine Dougan, formerly of DouganJones, an alt-country musical duo from Jackson, Mississippi, released her debut CD, "Morningside," in 2002. The album was recorded "live" in one 10-hour session at Route 1 Recording studio in Monticello, Mississippi. "Morningside" is available online at https://www.tradebit.com. The CD, which offers listeners the simple styling and true sound and feel of a live performance, features eight songs penned by Dougan and two written by Jones.

Both self-taught acoustic guitarists, singer-songwriter Katherine R. Dougan and singer-songwriter Steven Jones met in 2001 after Dougan moved to Jackson. The now-defunct duo played together until August 2002.

A rural Southern Indiana native, Dougan moved to the Deep South in 1998. She picked up the guitar after a divorce, when she traded her wedding ring for a used acoustic guitar at a pawnshop in Kentucky. A freelance writer and poet, Dougan plays flute and piano. She cites her mother''s family''s Tennessee mountain music as her earliest influence. "My mother''s family -- she has 12 brothers and sisters -- used to play bluegrass music on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. They played spoons, a mandolin -- which my Uncle James called a ''sweet tater'' and a washtub bass. I remember sitting for hours in a red-vinyl-seat chrome-legged kitchen chair, my little kid legs dangling above the floor, listening to the music.

"My influences include lots of older country music, especially Hank Williams Sr. -- his words are amazing. Longtime influences include EmmyLou Harris, Gram Parsons, John Prine as well as Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Lucinda Williams and Julie & Buddy Miller," Dougan said.

Mississippi native Jones -- now a North Carolina resident -- hails from the hill country of Pontotoc. A pharmacist, Jones grew up listening to his dad''s Beatles and Bob Dylan 8-track tapes.
