Pat Donohue & Mike Dowling

According to Chet Atkins, Pat Donohue is "one of the greatest fingerpickers in the world." Any praise that could be given to a guitar player seems insignificant next to such a statement, but Donohue's work warrants even more acclaim. He was named the 1983 National Fingerpicking Guitar Champion, and continues to garner recognition as an exceptional musician and entertainer. Fans of National Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion have been treated to the fingerpicked guitar work of Pat Donohue for years, whether they know it or not. Donohue started appearing as a guest performer in the '80s and has been a regular member of the show's house band since 1993.

The full range of Donohue's talents, however, are evident on his recorded works, which blend folk, jazz, blues, ragtime, and boogie woogie. After recording Manhattan to Memphis and Pat Donohue for Red House Records, Donohue founded his own label: BlueSky Records. In 1991, he released Life Stories and an album of jazz and instrumental standards, Two Hand Band followed two years later. Donohue shifted gears with Big Blind Bluesy, a collection of classic country blues from the likes of Blind Blake and Big Bill Broonzy, as well as Donohue originals. Atkins appears on 1996's Backroads, which features solo and full-band performances of Donohue-penned songs. American Guitar showcases Donohue's ability as a solo performer and includes more of his own songs, as well as his arrangements of traditional American pieces such as "Maple Leaf Rag" and "the Star Spangled Banner."

Donohue travels extensively for A Prairie Home Companion and, in addition to his solo concert performances, he conducts numerous group workshops for guitar players across the U.S. ~ Mark Vanderhoff, Rovi

He hasn't been hiding. You just have to know where to look and who to look for. :))

thank you Pandora for turning me onto this guy!
So that's the guy on Prairie Companion. A true Country Gentleman.
Pat played a guitar circle show in Woodstock, IL and was the standout performer. He is the real deal.

I met Pat when he was in town June 2011 w/PHC and had the pleasure of driving him and the rest of the cast around Flagstaff. I also saw him at the '83 Fingerpickin g event in Winfield, KS where my husband also competed.
A very nice guy and incredible musician!

where has this guy been hiding?
His style and the music says it all!
...so, who's gonna argue with Chet? Certainly not me.
