The Harefield Heart Research Foundation presents:

Lonnie Donegan: Rock Island line Tribute Concert
A Host of Stars Pay Tribute to LONNIE DONEGAN

Monday 21st June 2004  7.30pm

Lonnie Donegan was among the first to bring American Jazz, Folk and Blues into England and with a touch of the Donegan magic, he turned them all into Skiffle. This music influenced many British musicians during the 60's. Chris Farlowe and Norman Beaker were both greatly influenced by Lonnie and they will be appearing with their band (NBB) on this great tribute night,  along with a multitude of great musicians, which include:

Brian May, Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, Mark Knopfler, Roger Daltrey, Gerry Marsden, Joe Brown, Rolf Harris, Chas & Dave, Bruce Welch, Billy Bragg, Ralf McTel, Rick WakemanChris Barber, Arlo Guthrie, Ralph Mctell, Peter Wingfield, The Baron Nights, plus his son Peter and many more will contribute to this performance. 

A tribute to a man who will be greatly missed, not only a great musician, but a great friend and father to many people.

This performance is in aid of a charity that was very close to Lonnie: The Coronary Bypass Research Foundation & The Harefield Heart Research Foundation.

As Lonnie Used To Say: 'Book Early To Avoid Disappointment.'

Box Office: 0207 7589 8212
Tickets: £40 £32.50 £25 (Group Concessions available)

Proceeds in aid of 'The British Heart foundation'
