Skiffle ace in concert

Peter Donegan

enjoy an evening of pure nostalgia at the Assembly Rooms, Derby, on Saturday, February 19, when the legendary Lonnie Donegan Band makes a welcome return to the city.

The band toured with skiffle supremo Lonnie Donegan for 30 years and is now fronted by Lonnie’s son, Peter Donegan, and performs many of the hits they had over the years, including Putting on the Style, Have a Drink on Me, Rock Island Line, and Pick a Bale of Cotton, to name just a few, combined with some of Peter’s self-penned numbers.

Also on the bill is Derbyshire’s own Please Y’Self, the brothers-and-sisters skiffle band playing their own brand of goodtime music to packed audiences, a Derbyshire Dales cottage industry with a difference.

Expect a great night of skiffle, blues, and razzmatazz. 

Tickets are £16 (concessions £14) from the Assembly Rooms box office on 01332 255800, or the ticket hotline on 01773 853428.
