Main Series

Pat Donohue is one of the players who put Minnesota on the map as the home of terrific guitarist-composers: winner of the National Fingerstyle Championship (1983), long-time house guitarist on the Prairie Home Companion, preserver of traditional blues, creator of amazing guitar arrangements of swing and jazz standards, writer of touching and wickedly funny songs. He sings about “sittin’ in the basement, stealin’ from Chet [Atkins],” and he wound up sharing the stage with the master on many occasions. Now we can sit in Bo’s and steal from Pat.

“I first heard him on the radio and got upset. Then I heard him in concert and got more upset. He thinks harmonically, improvises beautifully, and writes. If you’re a guitar player, he’s going to haunt you.” –Leo Kottke

“It is clear that Kottke has not overestimated Donohue’s ability.” –Los Angeles Times
