ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sunday Fingerpicking Matinee

Evanston's own fingerpicking champ Eric Lugosch will be sharing the stage with very special guest Pat Donohue. These two consecutive winners -1983 & 1984- of the National Fingerpicking Championship will be performing solo sets with some duets thrown in for good measure. This intimate matinee performance will thrill all fingerpicking guitar aficionados and all fans of jazz, blues, traditional folk and contemporary songwriting.

Pat Donahue, as the guitarist for the “Guys All-Star Shoe Band” of Minnesota Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, got to show off his savvy licks and distinctive original songs to millions of listeners each week. Pat’s musical tastes are eclectic. Though he considers himself foremost a folk guitarist, Pat’s influences are rooted in bluesmen Blind Blake, Robert Johnson, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters and Miles Davis. He 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 humor.

“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
