Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
We are all seemingly as long in the tooth. Chris Barber called it skiffle, after a record he had got from the states. I came in to folk music via Mick Muligan's jazz band, and George Melly. (They played Sunday nights at the Ferry Boat, Edmonton in the fiffty's.) Then Lonnie Donegan, Chas McDevit, Martin Winsor, Red Sullivan and all the other skifflers. Proud of it.
