Summer Playlist from a Beach Bum

By Allison Duggan

I run a crazy life.  I help manage 6/8 Records, run marketing campaigns for small
start-ups such as Entertainment Talk Shop, play bassoon in Brooklyn, compose, sometimes sleep, but my Saturdays are all about the beach.

I wrote a bassoon solo piece off of a storm I witnessed by the docks.  It was one of the most magnificent thing I have seen, and the sound of the boats made my experience a musically twining night.  You can check out the piece here, as well as a mix I am working on about my South shore Long Island adventures. 10547518_10202667605195624_7654563185908639359_n

Every year I make a playlist to accompany my many journeys on “the shore”.   I decided to share it with you all! A random, yet beachy collection of songs, that depict my summer of fun.


Any songs I should add? let me know! Enjoy your summer folks!
