Robert Douglas Kerr

Douglas has been a freelance musician for many years and specialises in Scottish traditional music on the clarsach. He occasionally plays the organ in church. He has written a few short musicals and has recently completed a course in film music composition.

His principal roles with the Society include John Wellington Wells in The Sorcerer, Pish-Tush in The Mikado and Pierre in La Vie Parisienne. Most recently for DGASS he played the Second Yeoman in The Yeomen of the Guard and Giorgio in The Gondoliers.

It has been a lifelong ambition to play a portrait coming to life since he first saw Ruddigore as a child, and he is going to relish the experience.
