About Peter Donegan

Almost inevitably, Peter Donegan has been performing since the age of five, given that the ‘ Godfather of British Rock n Roll ’, ‘ King Of Skiffle ’, the late Lonnie Donegan , is his father. Lonnie inspired every British Invasion band from The Beatles to Led Zeppelin. 

Peter has now released his new album - ‘LIVE’, recorded at the old Decca recording studios, London where he invited a host of fans to watch a live performance in the same studio that his late father recorded his industry-changing first hit – ‘Rock Island Line’. This album received rave reviews such as “... this album is almost unparalleled...” (

As a scholar of the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, Peter has just finished another successful Buddy Holly Songwriting retreat in Lubbock, TX. He wrote songs with legends such as Sonny West (composer of most of Buddy Holly’s hits including ‘ Rave On ’) and Mark Nevin (Previously of Fairground Attraction and composer of ‘ Perfect ’). 

All of these songs plus many more are being compiled and ready for Peter’s next album. "
