"an artist well worth paying attention to" - Victory Music Review

If hearing the name Kitty Donohoe brings to mind an award-winning songwriter with several critically acclaimed albums to her credit - as well as being a Michigan Emmy recipient for her 9/11 song 'There Are No Words' -   you'd be right.  (Click above to hear the live Pentagon performance of the song from September 11, 2008.)

Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Kitty creates music that is rich, luminous, earthy and compelling, successfully merging her Irish and American roots in her work.  Backing herself on guitar, cittern and keyboard, she uses her 3-octave voice to sing her songs,

“...a voice that could ruffle the feathers on any school boy’s neck.” - Fast  Folk Magazine

written with a love of language and an unerring sense of melody. With one foot firmly planted in her Northern roots (Michigan) and the other tapping into her Irish heritage, her music resonates long after her performances are done. 

“her songs are heartfelt, direct, and honest, delivered in a supple, textured voice that easily travels her complex melodies.” - Ann Arbor Observer

“far above and beyond most singer-songwriters.” - Rich Warren, of WFMT, Chicago

Several years ago Kitty developed strong family programs that reflect the heritage and culture of Michigan and the Great Lakes. See the Family Fare page for more.
