Thread Name: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
Subject: RE: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
PS to GUEST FloraG:
Saw the Peter Donegan Band at Camberley last night- a small but enthusiastic audience of a certain age (like me). Hearing aids and walking sticks were not compulsory but...
The band consisted of PD: Acoustic guitars, banjo, piano, mandolin, harmonica and lead vocals, "Steady" Eddie Masters on bass guitar, Chris Hunt on drums and Alan "Sticky" Wicket on washboard, added percussion and backing vocals. A guitarist called John(didn't catch his last name) deputised for Paul Henry on electric guitar. They played a lot of the old LD repertoire and some of PD's own, he took requests from the audience and his older brother, Anthony guested on acoustic guitar and lead vocals on "Gamblin' Man". PD even kept up the family tradition of breaking strings (3 times!).
Hope you have an equally entertaining evening.
