Kid with a Gun

I wrote ‘Kid with a Gun’ after Columbine, and every time there’s another incident like Charleston or Oregon I hear from people asking me to post this again.  So here it is, and sadly, still relevant.  The song is on my CD ‘Northern Border’ (2008) and any radio/media interested in getting a promo copy, please contact me here.  A copy of the album can be purchased at my Music page .





The Inishfree Irish Music Tour was wonderful ~ even better than most of us expected.  We spent idyllic days visiting ancient standing stones and churches and seaside villages, and every night hearing Irish traditional music.  Sometimes we were entertained by a solo artist and sometimes a scorching~hot session band, but all of it was amazing.  Best of all, 22 mostly-strangers were good friends by the end of the tour.
I’ll be leading another tour next Spring, May 23 thru June 1, 2016. We’ll be a bit north this time, visiting Co’s Mayo, Galway and Clare. For more info on the trip please email me here.



Based in Ann Arbor, Emmy recipient Kitty Donohoe draws from her Irish heritage as well as her American and Canadian roots in her music, which is rich, earthy and compelling, making good use of her gifts for storytelling, her love of language, and her ear for melody.

“Kitty Donohoe is a true treasure – a rare songwriter with tremendous range, a beautiful voice and an ability to write haunting, melodic and literate songs. She deserves a wider audience.” All Music Guide

Rich Warren of WFMT Chicago has included Kitty on his list of the ’50 most significant songwriters in the last 50 years.’

Fall 2015
