Born in Dublin Donal Donohoe started playing guitar around the age of ten. His early influences included folk music and blues, later embracing the sounds of rock, Latin and jazz music. He went on to develop his own unique and original guitar style. Early influences included Bert Jansch, Davy Graham and Mississippi John Hurt, all of whom left a big impression on his guitar playing during his teenage years. Some of his first original songs were written in this period and usually employed the fingerstyle 'folk baroque' approach on guitar first pioneered by the aforementioned influences as the main accompaniment. The harmonic and rhythmic possibilities that this style opened up would be something that he would work with and develop for the rest of his life, eventually incorporating the sounds of jazz into the mix of folk and blues. Donal has released two albums of original songs 'Midnght 'til Noon' released 2005 and 'Ceol 's Rann' released in 2007.

Donal,
Excellent work, man! Always nice to find another finger-style folkie. May you return from your travels before too long.
