Does anyone know if this old skiffle singer is still doing concerts in the UK. Wullie

Probably! Definitely was a few years ago. If you go to and enter 'lonnie donegan' - no quotes and watch the spelling! - you'll get over 400 hits... must give the info you need somewhere in there!

definitely working still, but I heard that he is doing more of a cabaret act now (which includes his skiffle stuff). I'll talk to a friend of mine here in Australia who used to do some bookings for him and try to find out who his management company is - it may take a week or two though.

I think he was at least one festival this year ?Fleadh?, Glastonbury?
I saw him last on the Chris Barber Band's 40th Anniversary Tour in Reading a couple of years ago. He came in with a chair to sit on, on Doctor's orders after his several heart attacks, but only sat down for a few minutes. His set was all-out old Lonnie, tie off, banjo & guitar thrashed,voice as strong as ever, sweat towelled off between numbers. I hope his doctor wan't in the audience. I know he "retired" to Spain after his first heart problems, but he still does selected gigs.
