Bill Dougal Concert at Windhamarts Feb. 28th

Novelty Songs For Young And Old

Sunday, Feb 28 at 1pm

Bill Dougal presents a concert of his original songs for kids, as well as novelty tunes from the 1920’s-40’s. This makes it an ideal show for kids and their grandparents, or anyone that likes fun songs. This fundraiser for Windhamarts should be useful in maintaining the cultural space on Main Street Willimantic, across from the library.

Bill writes about subjects that have humorous possibilities; walking a duck, keeping a burro in a bureau, playing checkers on a giraffe, jellyfish and peanutbutter fish (they go well with jellyfish).

The songs in this show are picked from Bill’s three musical acts for kids; “Fun Songs From Bill’s Hat”, “Cowboy Billy”, and “Fish Song Fun”. Find audio and video samples of Bill’s songs at .

Bill will also do a Shel Silverstein song. Bill’s material is ideal for ages 5-10, but anyone should get a kick out of them. Folks of all ages may also enjoy the rest of the repertoire, which is chosen from tin-pan alley tunes from the good old days. Titles include; “Digga Digga Doo”, “Ma, She’s Makin’ Eyes at Me”, and a Homer & Jethro parody of Heartbreak hotel” called “Hard Break Motel”.
Jumbo cartoon illustrations by Bill accompany many songs. Guests can also buy their caricature during or after this event.
Admission; $5 per person at door. Contact 456-9041
