Grammy-winning fingerpicker Pat Donohue's devotion to acoustic guitar has made him an American standard. As the guitarist for the “Guys All-Star Shoe Band” of Minnesota Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, for twenty years Pat got to show off his savvy licks and distinctive original songs to millions of listeners each week.
Grammy-winning Mike Dowling digs deep into the musical bag of American roots guitar, favoring the melodic Piedmont style of acoustic blues masters like Mississippi John Hurt and slide great Tampa Red. From bottleneck blues to vintage jazz and much more in between, Mike’s musicality, depth, and mastery of the instrument translates fluently to flattop, archtop, and resonator guitars alike.
