Kitty Donohoe

 

continued

weariness coalesce when she walks onto any stage and picks up her guitar. Weary or no, Donohoe's no cynic. Her songs — love songs, admonitions, paeans to the beauty and history of Michigan — are heartfelt, direct, and honest, delivered in a supple, textured voice that easily travels her complex melodies.

I've seen her live several times and am continually struck by Donohoe's confidence as a performer. She's a masterful player who easily trades her guitar for a bouzouki when the song calls for it. She pulls song after song out of her depths and sings each as if it were both her first and last time. If she ever got stage fright, well, she stopped that nonsense a long time ago.
