An early front-runner for the 2007 Odd Couple Pairing of the Year award has emerged with word that filmmaker David Lynch and ‘60s folk-rock hero Donovan will team for three free appearances this month.

They’ll make stops Jan. 12 at Lincoln Center in New York, Jan. 14 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and conclude their brief tour Jan. 21 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Donovan will play songs from his ‘60s heyday (possible tunes include “Mellow Yellow,” “Sunshine Superman” and “Hurdy Gurdy Man”) while Lynch plans to discuss his latest film (“Inland Empire”) and new book (“Catching the Big Fish”) from the stage.


The two came together through their shared interest in Transcendental Meditation, and the tour was created to raise awareness and support for in-school meditation programs designed to help at-risk youths.
