About the instructor:
Jim Donovan M.Ed., Leader of the band Sun King Warriors, Assistant Professor at Saint Francis University, is an inspirational performer and educator who believes in the power of music to bring people together. Over the past three decades, Donovan has performed thousands of concerts and learning events across the US and Europe. As a performer, Donovan writes and records with his rootsy groove-rock band Sun King Warriors. As an educator, he brings his motivating brand of open-hearted, big-energ to every event he leads- whether they be a conference keynote, corporate team building, educational training or wellness retreat.

Donovan got his start as a founding member of the 3-time platinum 90's band Rusted Root, where he co-wrote and performed “Send Me on My Way,” a song whose unforgettable whistle has been featured in both Matilda and Ice Age. During his touring work with Rusted Root, he shared arena stages with rock legends such as Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, members of Led Zeppelin and Sting, among others.
