It isn't often I can persuade a guitar God like Pat to play in a small intimate setting like Lakeview. This is one of those shows I pinch myself to be sure I am not dreaming. A Prairie Home Companion regular and one of the best guitarists and songwriters on the folk circuit. Wow. RSVP before it is too late.
“I first heard him on the radio and got upset. Then I heard him in concert and got more upset. He thinks harmonically, improvises beautifully, and writes. If you're a guitar player, he's going to haunt you...” --Leo Kottke!!
“Our live 'Folkstage' performer was Pat Donohue who received a very rare standing ovation from our audience. His droll wit, great sense of humor, amazing guitar picking and perfectly constructed set really pleased our studio audience. He's been wasted all these years on APHC. He's a great solo artist.” --THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL with Rich Warren 2/16
Excerpts from Dirty Linen
by Stephen Ide
If it were that easy, every fingerstyle guitarist would play as well as Pat Donohue. A Midwesterner with the rhythm of a drummer and the soul of a New Orleans saxophonist, Donohue has the fingers of one of the world’s finest guitarists. He brings his talent weekly to the radio stage of A Prairie Home Companion where he started regularly playing in its band in 1993. You’ll also catch him on concert stages nationwide and in the lesson room, where he teaches guitar playing.
Though he was named National Fingerpicking Guitar Champion in 1983, perhaps the greatest testament to the virtuosity of Donohue’s guitar playing is the kudos he receives from fellow musicians. Guitar great Leo Kottke calls Donohue’s playing “haunting.” And Chet Atkins jokes on Donohue’s album Backroads, that perhaps it’s time for him to steal from Pat.
