Thread Name: Lonnie Donegan - awesome
Subject: Lonnie Donegan - awesome
I just have to say: I've just got home from seeing Lonnie Donegan on his 50th Anniversary Tour and he and his musicians were just awesome (I haven't used that adjective yet about a musician). I wasn't a fan - in fact I only know of him in passing, but I just felt like getting up and cheering every song they did - and there was a unanimous mass standing ovation by the end. Excellent harmonies, excellent musicians, really tight... Oh, just go see him - he's getting on after all! -gives tour dates in UK.

(Tip tho': Alternative supports are Geno Washington - probably worth it, but Deborah Bonham ...stay in the bar until after the interval)
