Pat Donohue

Pat Donohue has earned prominent recognition for his mastery of acoustic fingerstyle guitar, which he exhibits weekly as the guitarist for the Guys All Star Shoe Band on Garrison Keillor's radio program "A Prairie Home Companion." Chet Atkins called him one of the greatest finger pickers in the world today; Leo Kottke called his playing "haunting."

Though he considers himself foremost a folk guitarist, Pat manages to blend jazz and blues with folk, and the mix is seamless. Over the years he has captivated audiences with his unique original compositions, dazzling instrumentals and humorous song parodies, including Sushi-Yucky and Would You Like to Play the Guitar?

Honors include several Minnesota Music Awards and the prestigious title of 1983 National Finger Picking Guitar Champion. His original tunes have been recorded by Chet Atkins, Suzy Bogguss, and Kenny Rogers. Pat has also been a featured performer at major music festivals including the Newport, Telluride, Philadelphia, and Winfield Folk Festivals.
