FOLK WORKS - Jackie Morris
“Annie…has a natural gift for communicating feeling in music- a deceptively simple style that allows for a powerful emotional honesty.” “A fresh new voice in the folk world,”
(Jackie Morris, Folk Works).
FOLK PROJECT ACOUSTIC GETAWAY - Mark Schaffer, Acoustic Getaway Chairman
"Annie Donahue’s standing ovation at The Acoustic Getaway was instant - almost required by the laws of science, human nature and music. Her heartfelt and well-crafted messages of life, love, pain, and joy were delivered with creative and intelligent melodies on the wings of the purist voice we've heard in ages. Annie's band is exceptional. Their arrangements were as sophisticated, meaningful, and inspiring as her lyrics. Tonight our stage was filled with talent, and our audience experienced a common emotional journey that ended in an explosion of applause and appreciation. Shows are meant to be this. What a night!"
THE TROUBADOUR ACOUSTIC CONCERT SERIES - Mike Agranoff, Program Chair
Stylishly original, clean, and highly skilled, It is never flashy or showy, but always the perfect accompaniment to the song or the musical moment. This is a type of virtuosity in which a lot of the more famous virtuosi will sometimes fall short.
"I love, love, LOVE, with a capital L what you are doing! The astonishing combination of the relationship of your instruments and the articulate nature of your arrangements was simply magical!"
Fun and lighthearted, intense and honest, Todd Dennison carefully and lovingly crafted a masterful collaboration which brought the audience along on a sweet and beautiful journey of truth, love, friendship and warmth culminating with what felt like a giant group hug.
Todd produced a show that was varied, musically brilliant, and absolutely delightful from the first note to the last.
