Donna Hughes – Oct. 6, 2012

Saturday, Oct. 6th – 7:30 pm: Donna Hughes

“Whatever moves me, moves me to write,” explains emerging song-writer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Donna Hughes. For Hughes, songwriting is an all-consuming endeavor, encompassing all that goes on around her. “My songs are always about something I have seen, done, or felt – or something that I saw someone else do or go through. There is always truth to every song I write, even if it isn’t my truth.” Since she first began writing songs a little over a decade ago she has composed over 300, recording over half of them. Her songs have been recorded by Alison Krauss and Union Station (My Poor Old Heart on their Lonely Runs Both Ways album), the Seldom Scene (Sad Old Train) and more artists. In 2010, the Carolina Music Awards nominated Hughes for Country Female Vocalist of the Year.
