Wildflower Festival

Kyle Donovan

UnitedHealthcare Singer Songwriter Stage

With appearances last year at Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Kyle Donovan’s forthcoming album has already won critical acclaim from folk festivals and competitions across the nation. The storytelling troubadour has been crafting vivid vignettes, capturing moments from everyday life to tell stories of love, loss, family, and the passage of time for a new album called Then and Now, slated for release in March of 2019. ​He calls the countryside near Boulder, CO home, and often produces, collaborates, and plays with other songwriters on the Front Range, includingSummerland Sun and Clandestine Amigo. Kyle also hosts a monthly live-performance podcast featuring independent musicians called The Songwriter Hour.

Donovan’s 2016 album, The Kindness of Strangers, was inspired by the connection and common bond of humanity that he found touring across the US in 2015. The album’s “spare, acoustic, [and] infectious” sound landed Donovan an Honorable Mention at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Contest and recognition from American Songwriter Magazine
