Peter Donegan & his band on Sunday 13th October 2019

Almost inevitably, Peter Donegan has been performing since the age of five, given that the ‘Godfather of British Rock n Roll’, ‘King Of Skiffle’, the late Lonnie Donegan, is his father.

Lonnie inspired every British Invasion band from The Beatles to Led Zeppelin. Even The White Stripes’ Jack White cites Lonnie as one of his major influences. All this runs through Peter's veins and is clearly evident in his live performances, as well as in the studio. Amongst Peters own admirers are Nora Guthrie (daughter of seminal folk musician, Woody Guthrie) Crystal Gayle and Billy Bragg.

Primarily a singer/songwriter and piano player, Peter picked up the acoustic guitar after his Dad passed away in 2002 and taught himself to play the mandolin, harmonica, banjo and ukulele.

Peter was unintentionally born in London as his Dad Lonnie was still on tour when his mother (Lonnie's then Manager) went into labour early, although the family were actually living in California where it was intended that he would be born. Peter was raised in Lake Tahoe, California then between Orlando, Florida and Malaga, Spain where the family spent quite some time.

No surprise then, from all this, that Peter loves Country music so much and considers himself a true British-American hybrid.

This year the band are celebrating the 65th Anniversary of Lonnie's 'Rock Island Line'
