srdugan - a guy with a guitar

Midwest Americana Singer-Songwriter, S. R. Dugan has been writing, performing & recording for over two decades. With roots in the acoustic music genres of folk, bluegrass and gospel, Dugan blends in his proprietary musical menagerie of Americana Folk-N-Roll. The Minnesota River Valley native is a member band of the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old Time Music Association (MBOTMA) as well as the Americana Music Association of Franklin, TN.  His indie release, "Memorial Lane" won the "Contemporary Gospel CD of the Year" award from the Rural Roots Music Commission in 2015.

S. R. Dugan’s recordings gather an eclectic assembly of friends and guest artists along with his multi-instrumental touches on acoustic guitars, acoustic & electric bass, 4 & 5-string banjo, drums & percussion, piano, synth, harmonium, lead & backing vocals across his varied original works.  

"I'm a simple Jesus follower, a husband, a father and a friend. While others may see me as many other things, in the end those are the only few that matter to me."  - SRD



Dugan is also a backing instrumentalist for the indie folk pop duo Sparrows Rising. Gigs with Sparrows Rising are noted on the calendar events page.
