Make Music Day is a world wide event held in over 120 countries and 700 cities. Held on the same day of each year, June 21st, it is a celebration of music. Any and all musicians are urged to participate.... young, old, novice, professional.

CHAW welcomes performances by:

Generational Jazz Combo- 1:30-2:30pm | Craig Donovan- 4:00-5:15pm | Abby Sevcik- 5:15-6:00pm

A combo of young musicians from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area that performs a fusion of Jazz, Blues, Latin, and Funk genres.

Craig Donovan's music embodies the art of songwriting in some of its most eclectic and personal forms. Influenced by Japanese, British and American folk, jazz and rock and Spanish classical guitar, Craig's songs contain a variety of subjects that resonate with audiences of all ages, including autobiographical situations as in the gorgeous harmony-laden duet "Thick and Thin", the haunting melody and emotional lyrics of "Standing at 2025" to the Buddhist and Shinto motifs of "Lotus Bridge" and the phantasmagoric rocker "Blue Mannequin." Since living in Japan, completing undergraduate studies at New York University and professional studies at Columbia University and The George Washington University Law School, and practicing as an environmental and natural resources and intellectual property attorney, Craig has been fulfilling his dream of recording and performing throughout the East Coast music scene and abroad including New York City, Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia and Japan. His warm Irish tenor and his skillful and distinctive guitar playing have been a constant signature of his energetic performances and recorded solo and band material.

"Craig has appeared at the bar at The Bitter End & Brewer's Alley to name a few . . . His hook-like melodies and heartfelt lyrics are a treat."- Jay Keating, Songwriter's Association of Washington, Washington, DC-

"The original songwriting of Craig Donovan represents one of the best prog-folk/rock projects out of the DMV you would do wrong to pass over." -Avery Williamson, Co-Jazz Director, U92FM, WWVU-FM-
