Doug Ferris is a musician that loves the sweet sound of jazz. Doug joins Art Waves to discuss the influence of music on a small community and how that scene can be built up to become part of the fabric of the town.

Doug explains the value of music to local culture and how he builds links in the community to get gigs in Port Perry and beyond. Doug also describes what he calls a ‘practiced amateur’ and how the Ferrport Jazz Ensemble was formed from regular jazz jams in his garage.

FunFact: Ferris + Port Perry = Ferrport
