Songwriter Showcase – Friday, December 2nd

By admin

After founding the monthly MSG Songwriter Showcase almost five years ago,  John Duggleby hosts his final event on Friday, December 2 at 7 pm at Tuvalu Coffeehouse, 300 S. Main St. in downtown Verona.  (Fear not, John Jacobs and Lynn Smith are taking it over)  For this farewell party John and his duo partner Dave Hopper will play a mini-set opening for the fabulous McDougals, who will perform for a full hour.

Following will be Dane County’s only originals-only open mic—if you wrote it, come and share it!  The evening will conclude with a group jam of John’s song “Meet Me at the Watering Hole,” an easy G-C-D three-chorder (with a stray B minor shuck in).  All musicians are welcome to join in—especially if you play something other than guitar.

Unwind from the work week in Tuvalu’s living-room ambiance with your favorite beer, wine or caffeinated concoction.  Suggested donation $5, and a bargain at any price!  Don’t miss this one—help send John off in style!
