Join us during brunch & Live music with John Duggleby!

John is an award-winning author of 11 books and hundreds of magazine articles, made his professional performing debut at age five at the Sunset Supper Club in Muscatine, Iowa, singing, “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby” after the piano man bribed him with a nickel. After a hootenanny fling in a “baby Kingston Trio,” he grew up as a percussionist playing everything from orchestra tympani to garage band rock and roll. As an adult he learned guitar as a more benign living room alternative.
Over the years John has labored in several underappreciated folk, 60s rock, Cajun, bluegrass and world music ensembles, but his main gig these days is playing over 100 one-man and duo shows a year for listeners of all ages, at venues ranging from coffeehouses, to senior centers, to libraries, to festivals. His songbook ranges from Stephen Foster and George M. Cohan to Beatles and Bruce Springsteen-- as well as his own material-- accompanied on guitar and who knows what else. John also leads drum circles and kitchen bands for groups including seniors and disabled people.

John finally realized a decades-long dream with the 2014 release of his first-ever album, Better Late Than Never, which can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/duggleby. His songs have been finalists in the Great American and Great River Folk Festival Songwriting Contest, and Madison Area Music Awards (MAMAS); as well as runner-up in the international www.SongoftheYear.com competition. One rose to #4 on the worldwide African music chart of Broadjam, one of the largest online music sites.
John, who has received 2nd place for Singer/Songwriters in the Isthmus “Madison’s Favorites” reader’s poll, is the founder and former host of the monthly Songwriter Showcase at Tuvalu Coffeehouse in Verona.
