AHWAHNEE – The last Coolwater Concert before a summer hiatus features Grammy-winning fingerstyle guitarist Pat Donohue on Saturday, June 6, at 8 p.m.
“A masterful guitarist and talented singer-songwriter of the blues, folk, and jazz… Donohue is a natural entertainer who possesses bundles of charm and wit.” —Los Angeles TImes
Pat has earned national 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.”
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.
