The musical collaboration of husband and wife singer-songwriters, Darwin and Dana Nelson (aka The former Mayor & First Lady of Lucedale, Ms.) known as "Double Dee" has taken them far from coastal Gulfport and their small-town roots of Lucedale, Mississippi and carried them across the country where they have created a name for themselves at numerous songwriting festivals, house concerts, and top-flight venues. Darwin and Dana most recent album is "Adjust The Sails", produced by their friend and legendary singer/songwriter/producer Keith Sykes from Memphis, Tenn.
They have performed at Margaritavilles from New Orleans to Pensacola Beach as well as entertained audiences ages 2-92 at other venues from Texas to Florida. The acoustic duo has been described by others as Americana/Folk/Gulf Western/Country, blending harmonic originals with a Mississippi accent. These two have opened up for such recording artists as Keith Sykes, Mac McAnally, Molly Hatchet, Louisiana’s Leroux, Ronnie McDowell, Will Kimbrough, John Conley, Jeff Bates, and Darrell Worley among others. They have entertained for Parrotheads at pre and post Jimmy Buffett concerts, festivals and events from Pensacola Beach, and New Orleans to Galveston, Austin and Illinois. They are founding members of the Mississippi Songwriters Festival.
