Welcome to the Wild Hog in the Woods Coffeehouse

Wild Hog Presents a Streamed Live Virtual Concert with

John Duggleby

Writer, Musician, Chicken Dancer

Friday, November 13, 2020 at 7:30pm CT

John Duggleby is no stranger to the Wild Hog. John was named 2020 Madison Area Music Association’s Children’s Performer of the Year, and  has received 2nd place for Singer/Songwriters in the Isthmus “Madison’s Favorites” reader’s poll.  His most recent literary work is a children’s book on Louis Armstrong’s childhood.

He is an award-winning songwriter and author of a dozen 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’s first 2014 album Better Late Than Never and new 2019 double album Castaway 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.
