Yesterday the Washington Post published a story about parents looking for “cool music” for their kids to listen to. Jack White’s Third Man Records recently collaborated with the imprint Light In the Attic and released “This Record Belongs To______” which comes with a record player built for children. Ben Swank at Third Man Records said “The reaction was so immediate and positive to the record player that we’ve already needed to do a reorder on them.” Matt Sullivan, who runs the Light in the Attic imprint, is quoted in the story saying “Why can’t kids have a real musical experience? Why can’t kids listen to Vashti Bunyon or Donovan? Good music is good music.” Donovan’s song The Mandolin Man and his Secret is featured in the compilation.

Donovan is traveling to Washington, D.C. soon for his Sapphograph exhibition at the Center for Hellenic Studies from December 12, 2015-March 31, 2016 and for a poetry reading with the poets Fabiana Avila and George Wallace on December 12. He will also be performing at Hamilton Live on December 14 celebrating his 50 years in music and song.
