Don Dugan takes the stage at the Cold Iron taproom from 7-10 PM, Saturday, November 9th.

Don’s bio:
“I got my first guitar at age 14, and grew up with the folk sound & British invasion of the 1960’s. For over 25 years I have performed in musical theater, Ironwood’s Chamber Singers, community events, weddings, funerals, and of course, bar/restaurants. My set list is usually an eclectic cocktail of old and new, with 60’s & 70’s classics from artists like Bob Dylan, The Eagles, J. Taylor, Bob Seger, and Van Morrison. Intermingled is Country flavoring with veterans like Willie Nelson to the fresh sounds of Chris Stapleton, among others.”
