Grammy winning fingerpicker Pat Donohue’s devotion to acoustic guitar has made him an American standard, as he echoes the tones of Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Merle Travis or Muddy Waters. Chet Atkins called Pat one of the greatest fingerpickers in the world today; Leo Kottke called his playing “haunting.”

Texas native and Minnesota transplant Richard Kriehn is a guitarist, fiddler, a vocalist, and widely regarded as one of the best mandolin players alive. He served his tenure in the house band for A Prairie Home Companion, and has won the Buck White International Mandolin Contest. He’s released two albums of his own, and has appeared on dozens of others.

I'm an expatriate Memphis musician and an instructor at a private music college in Minnesota. I find a greater clarity in my appreciation for music from Memphis and the Mississippi Delta region, now that I've lived away from it for decades, than when I was growing up in the midst of it.
