Grammy winning fingerpicker Pat Donohue’s devotion to acoustic guitar has made him an American standard, as he echoes the tones of Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Merle Travis or Muddy Waters. A versatile guitarist’s guitarist, Pat enjoys entertaining fans with intricate flatpicking, easy wit, and nimble interpretations of old blues, swing, R&B and original tunes.

For over twenty years Pat was the lead guitar player and songwriter for the “Guy’s All Star Shoe Band” on the NPR favorite A Prairie Home Companion. Pat is now touring the US playing a variety of venues including Performance Halls, Coffeehouse series and in blues, folk and eclectic listening rooms. Pat also conducts guitar workshops and teaches at prestigious guitar camps across the country.

Pat recently released his new recording, “Blue Yonder.” He is accompanied on some cuts by members of the “Prairie All Stars” who were also members of the “Guy’s All Star Shoe Band”. There are also solo tracks on the CD, clever new original songs as well three new instrumental numbers.

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.
