MARSHFIELD — John Duggleby, an award-winning author of 11 books and hundreds of magazine articles, will be performing his All-American Classics program at the Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on June 26 in the J.P. Adler Program Room.
Duggleby made his professional performing debut at age 5 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. He grew up as a percussionist playing everything from orchestra tympani to garage band rock ‘n’ roll. As an adult he learned guitar as a more benign living room alternative.
Duggleby now plays more than 100 one-man and duo shows a year for listeners of all ages. His songbook ranges from Stephen Foster and George M. Cohan to the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen as well as his own material.
