E.K Blessing has added touring musician and composer Doug Woolverton to its family of artists. Woolverton regularly plays an E.K. Blessing BFH-1541RT Flugelhorn.

“It means a lot that Doug has chosen our BFH-1541RT as his go to flugelhorn,” says Phil Baughman, brand manager at E.K. Blessing. “We’ve worked hard to provide musicians at his level an instrument that can respond to every demand. Having Doug’s endorsement means we’re doing something right and it’s really an honor to have him aboard.”

Woolverton earned a BA in trumpet performance from Northern State University and then went on to perform with some of the industry’s greatest acts, from Aretha Franklin, The Temptations and John Scofield to Warren Haynes and They Might Be Giants. He is also the former trumpet player for the award-winning band Roomful of Blues. Woolverton also tours with his own band, Groove Merchants, and has been nominated for multiple awards.

He says of the E.K. Blessing BFH-1541RT, “This flugel offers an even blow with rich, warm characteristics that inspire me to translate ideas I hear in my head whenever I play it. My Blessing 1541 flugelhorn is so enjoyable and easy to play. I love it.”
