"I first heard him on the radio and got upset. Then I heard him in concert somewhere and got more upset. He thinks harmonically, improvises beautifully and writes. Disgusting. Enjoy his music, but if you're a guitar player, it's going to haunt you." – Leo Kottke
Pat Donohue combines the rare talent of being a superb guitar player with that of writing excellent songs. He is also a showman who weaves humor and wit into his performances. A concert with Pat can move you with his songs such as Midnight Man, and then astound you with his finger dexterity as he blazes through Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag. His tongue-in-cheek humor shows up in his hilarious songs Bio and Stealing from Chet, while his sentimentality is apparent on Out on the Road to Kingdom Come.
A concert with Pat Donohue is all-encompassing, and is a richly musical experience that will leave you asking for more. This 60 minute DVD was recorded at Freight & Salvage in Berkeley California.
