Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
Lonnie Donegan is an absolute treat. Its great to hear how one performer genuinely takes on a whole body of work. Folkies can be too stuffy believing that the sound they heard first, or the oldest sound, is the only way to do a song.

He gives it his all, he has his own style, he's a good musician, and he obviously is a hard workin so and so. What's not to like?

I'm in Canada and I really enjoyed the flavour of his performances that I've heard on CD. I'd love to see him live.

I think his style would go over real well any where people would give him a chance.
