Kitty Donohoe – Concert Stage

June 16 @ 7:00 pm

$13 – $18

Emmy award-winning songwriter Kitty Donohoe was born into a large, creative family outside of Detroit and has been ‘making up’ songs as long as she can remember. Describing her music as ‘folky, bluesy, Irishy, American, Canadianish’, she draws from her roots to create music that is uniquely her own!

With a love of language, an innate sense of melody, and the soul of a storyteller, she backs herself on piano, guitar and cittern with equal finesse, but she sees the skills as mostly providing the foundation for the music she writes, both songs and instrumentals.

Singing her songs with a ‘soaring voice’ Kitty is known as being a warm and natural performer. In 2002 Kitty was awarded an Emmy for her 9/11 song ‘There Are No Words’, which led to its use in a film and an appearance at the Pentagon for the dedication of the 9/11 Memorial. Over the years Kitty has opened stages for a wide variety of artists, like Doc Watson, Bruce Cockburn, Tom Rush, and many others.

The concert will be opened by Wattle & Daub, modern-folk duo and married singer/songwriters.

Tickets range from $13-$18. Reservations recommended.
