About The Artist

Hillbilly fever had spread far and wide in the middle 1950s. Even as far north as Alaska, which is where Doug Lewis, who was 24 at the time, had started a show a couple years earlier in a town near the Arctic Circle, Fairbanks, Alaska. That show got himself a bit of local fame and in demand for personal appearances.

Doug and his band were playing regularly to packed houses at the "Cowtown Club" then.

Doug also recorded for the Intro record label and wrote most of the songs he recorded, including these Alaskan-themed songs:

  • Alaska Waltz
  • Iceworm Boogie
  • Little Belle Of The Yukon
  • Son Of A Sourdough
