The first concert in 2020 brings Jerry Kosak and Pat Donohue to the Guild stage. Both guitar masters will share music with Northfield audiences shortly after the new year. Audiences will recognize Pat’s signature style after hearing music he played or wrote for almost 20 years on A Prairie Home Companion as part of the house band. Jerry’s music has hints of roots and blues, rock, classical, and jazz, allowing him to “develop his own unique voice as a player and composer.” Don't miss this night of incredible guitar music, buy your tickets at the Guild today!
