Re: Lonnie Donegan

That takes me back many a year!
I can strongly recommend "The Skiffle Sessions" - Van Morrison, Lonnie Donegan and Chris Barber - live in Belfast.
It sounds like a great night, with little rehearsal.

Produced by Van Morrison.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Thank you, Marie, for posting this. I particularly like the comment:
Leonard was not so much a wise man as a man in search of wisdom
