Dennison & Donahue
Dennison & Donahue are Folk Project favorites, a merging of the extraordinary guitar playing of Todd Dennison with the rare and poignant talents of singer/songwriter Annie Donahue. They combine traditional folk music and gospel with jazz influences to create a unique framework for Annie’s gorgeous melodies and soul-baring lyrics. Their performances touch audiences with introspection, joy, and an almost meditative flight to where meaning, feelings, and sound meet.
Annie has a natural gift for conveying complex emotions with her simple, direct-to-the-heart vocal purity. Her moving and well-crafted messages of life, love, pain, and joy are delivered with creativity and intelligence. Todd is a sensitive craftsman – a brilliant guitarist whose complex arrangements provide a lush, but simple soundscape on which Annie’s voice is clearly defined and exquisitely supported. Together, their music is spellbinding.
This is their second appearance on the Stayaway stage. They were too good not to get a second helping.
