Don't be misled by the cartoon.. or the fact that it was drawn by Johns Grandfather 85 years ago! That's Johns Dad as a baby and his Grandfather walking the floor in San Francisco in the early 1920's Musician. Songwriter. Entertainer. Funny man. Baseball coach. Pancake maker. Lawn mower. John Dunnigan is many things. He's also one lucky, plucky guy. He's been fortunate to play music for a living almost his entire life. Pick any stringed instrument and odds are he can pick it - guitar, banjo, pedal steel. He also blows a mean harp. During his career, John has played with Bonnie Raitt, Asleep at the Wheel, Norton Buffalo, The Dirt Band, Kris Kristofferson and many others including Bruce Springsteen.
