Daniel Donato with special guest
Daniel Donato with special guest Rainbow Girls
For many years, 2018 Americana Award nominee DANIEL DONATO operated as the guitarist for Nashville acts like The Wild Feathers, Paul Cauthen and The Don Kelley Band. From age 14, Donato has developed his brand of crisp, soulful, on the edge telecaster picking under bar lights, honing his skills and proving his mettle within the city’s prominent live music scene. All the while, a growing love of songwriting mirrored the pace of his ever improving guitar chops. Now, a short three years after his departure from Kelley’s classic country outfit, the 23 year old has a docket of jam ready country and bluegrass songs. Backed by his three piece “Cosmic Country Band” – cosmic country is a catch all term for experimental roots music, often assisted by electronic sounds – Donato stands at the frontier of his career with characteristic intrepidity, no longer bounded by the expressive limitations of his instrument.
RAINBOW GIRLS are an eclectic folk trio hailing from the golden countryside just north of California’s Bay Area. Vanessa May, Erin Chapin, and Caitlin Gowdey seamlessly combine soul-touching harmonies, varitextured instrumentals, and poignant lyrical content into a beautiful sonic tapestry. Throughout their performance, voices are paired with an ever-changing amalgamation of acoustic and slide guitar, keys, upright bass, harmonica, and an array of vocal techniques creating an engaging and often emotionally moving live show.
