p_donegan.jpgAccording to the Internet source given below, Anthony James Donegan MBE, known as Lonnie Donegan, was a Scottish skiffle singer, songwriter and musician, referred to as the "King of Skiffle", who influenced 1960s British pop musicians. The British Hit Singles & Albums lists him as "Britain's most successful and influential recording artist before The Beatles".
He had 31 UK Top 30 single hits, 24 being successive and three at number one. He was the first British male singer with two US Top 10 hits. Donegan received an Ivor Novello lifetime achievement award in 1997 and in 2000 he was made an MBE.
Personal remarks:
Well, he certainly influenced a lot of my classmates at Worcester Royal Grammar School in the mid 1950s. On many a sunny day 4 or 5 boys would gather together to sing his latest hits. My particular favourites at that time were Cumberland Gap and My Old Man's a Dustman. Happy memories!
