Donovan joins Emmylous Harris and Rodney Crowell at Hamilton Live for Boneparte’s Retreat

by Chris Murray on December 14, 2015

History was made when Donovan met Emmylou Harris on stage last night with Rodney Crowell at Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C. at a concert to benefit Emmylou’s charity Bonaparte’s Retreat, “to rescue shelter dogs and adopt them into forever homes.” Donovan made a surprise guest appearance at the concert and sang two of his hits “Catch the Wind” and “Colors.” When Donovan left the stage I heard a concert-goer nearby say “That was really cool!” Emmylou and Rodney put on a great show and with Hamilton Live as partners raised important funds in support of Bonaparte’s Retreat.

Donovan performs at Hamilton Live tonight in a solo concert of songs and stories celebrating his 50th anniversary as a musical artist. His exhibition, Donovan:Sapphographs, which opened last Friday night at Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C., continues through March 31.
