ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – E.K Blessing is thrilled to have international touring musician and composer Doug Woolverton join its family of artists. Doug is one of the most in demand trumpet players in the industry and 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,” SaysPhil 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.”

Doug 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.”
