GUEST,jonesey Happy Birthday, Anthony James Donegan (26) RE: Happy Birthday, Anthony James Donegan 29 Apr 02


Lonnie Donegan...Happy Birthday! Those of us on this side really missed something it seems. Didn't he popularize 'skiffle' as a musical approach? Washboard percussion, washtub bass, acoustic guitar. What else was included in his sound? During my formative years in Chicago I ended up on stage with Steve Goodman a number of times with some makeshift aggregation. It was always loose and we'd play songs from anywhere with whatever was there. Is that what 'skiffle' was all about?
