Donovan plays Catch The Wind at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
Donovan began his career as an itinerant folk musician, creating acoustic hits in 1965 with the gentle Catch The Wind and Colours and his version of Buffy Sainte Marie’s protest anthem Universal Soldier before transforming the pop music landscape with a series of enigmatic and wondrous pop masterpieces that continue to be played on radio and television. And throughout his long career of 44 years, Donovan has always been supported by his music publisher, peermusic.
Donovan influenced Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and George Harrison in their guitar styles, and during his career played with folk music greats Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan, as well as rock musicians Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones.
Donovan is also fulfilling his 40-year interest in Transcendental Meditation by heading up the musical wing of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.
Recently Donovan was awarded a distinguished medal as “Officer of Arts & Letters” by the French Minister of Culture, Christine Albanelt.
