Word of South

Frank Douglas + Doug Moody

As the founding member and lead Singer/Songwriter for the Fried Turkeys, Tallahassee native Frank Douglas approaches the topics of love, lust, loss, politics and many other common societal themes with an ear for harmony and a head for irony.

His tunes combine influences ranging from folk to blues to country to rock, and his lyrics take inspiration from sources ranging from the absurd, to the ongoing poetry of his 93 year old mother, a lifelong muse. Some songs will make you laugh, and some may make you cry, and some will make you do both at the same time.

Fiddle player Doug Moody has been delighting audiences for decades with some of the country’s best musicians…blues great Popa Chubby, Celtic legend Kevin Mckrell, cosmic country rockers The Steam Donkeys and many others. Doug has toured both nationally and internationally for many years, bringing his unique style and interpretation to the many genres of music he performs. Always looking share his gifts, Doug loves to bond with an audience and create an unforgettable experience! Frank and Doug will be appearing at this year’s Word of South with the author Virginia Chamlee.
