Our guest this month is




Donna is a regular at Rafters, and when you know that she has twice won the Tui Award for best country song and best country album, and been nominated more recently for yet another best album Tui you will understand why. With influences that range from Tom Waits and Mary Chapin Carpenter to Billie Holliday and Sister Rosetta Tharpe Donna writes with an honesty that comes from the heart, capturing both the pain and joy of life. She will tug at your emotions and leave you wanting more. Add to this a beautiful voice and you have a recipe for a wonderful evening of music. 


Find out more about Donna here: 


The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guest. You will need to be there well before the 8pm start if you want to  perform as there are limited places.


See you there.
