Q

Just one question but must just tell you I have played and enjoyed "Showing My Roots" dozens of times in my SUV and it will stay there into the foreseeable future.
I first heard of you through Rebecca Long's Facebook blogs. Later saw you at the Mountaineer Opry, front row seat with my wife Nancy. We are lucky to see the top bands there, and we go to many festivals every year. You are one of the very best BG performers we have seen ; your popularity will soar. When will you cut another CD?

Thanks for the sweet words about Showin' My Roots and I am so glad you have enjoyed the album. I just released a a companion CD to my book called The Songwriter In Me: The Demo Recordings. This CD has 24 songs on it and all the lyrics are in my songwriting book so I wanted to offer the music to go with the lyrics. It is not recorded with a full band but in more of a songwriter demo setting with mostly just great acoustic guitar, sometimes a fiddle or mandolin. It is available on Amazon, iTunes, CD Baby and my website store. I am also just finishing up another new CD with full band, produced by Bryan Sutton. it should be released in June. We just did the photo shoot for the cover and shot a video for it! I'm very excited about it! Thanks for writing and mention me to the festival promoters you meet out there. It really makes a difference in getting booked! Say hi to Nancy and thanks for coming to our show in WV! Sorry to be slow in replying.
Peace, Donna

When will you be in Knoxville ? TN

Nothing in Knoxville anytime soon, sorry to say. Perhaps we will do the Blue Plate Special again as part of the promotion for my new release in the summer.
Peace,

Donna, Dwight Daniels was telling me of some venue in or near Nashville that you frequently play. Can you tell me the name. Thanx

I believe Dwight is talking about a place called Kimbros Cafe in Franklin, TN. Keep an eye on our schedule for when we are playing there. It is posted on my website at www.donnaulisse.com

Thank you so much Patrick! Sorry it took me so long to reply! Between writing songs, recording a new album, rehearsing new music with the band, I am afraid I have let reading my questions and comments slip. I will have to do better! :)
Peace, Donna

Do you tour in the south Myrtle Beach area?

Hi Ed!
We have played the Ocean Lakes Bluegrass Festival in Myrtle beach twice now. The last time was in Aug. of 2014. So far that is the only place we have played in Myrtle Beach. If you have any other suggestions of venues, please let us know and also, please tell the promoter or venue owner you would like to see us there. That always helps! Thanks so much.
Peace and a very happy new year,
Donna

Q

I have been trying to find your version of "I Want To Grow Old With You"
lyrics and chords without success. Also, I would like to know who wrote the version you are using.
Thank you.

Hello Bill,
Unfortunately we don't have sheet music available on this. I co-wrote the song with a friend who is also a songwriter named Claire Davidson. It is available on my CD "When I Look Back" and was also included in my compilation CD "I Am A Child of God". They are both available on my website store, Amazon, CDBaby, and iTunes also. While I don't have anything with the chords, I know my publisher would be happy to email you a copy of the lyrics if you email her at kanderson(at)hadleymusicgroup.com. Her name is Kathy. Tell her I asked her to email you the lyrics. Thanks! Donna

Q

Donna, we moved back home to Pa. Sandy and I are from the same small town. We missed you at Kimbro's the night you no-showed and had John Martin fill in. We were so disappointed to not get our goodbye hugs. We will find you again and hope to get you booked into NW Pa. in the future.

I'm a little behind on answering questions Bob and Sandy! Hope you are not covered in snow up in PA right now and hopefully we will make it to your neck of the woods in 2015. Right now there is nothing on the books but things are being worked on and added to the schedule all the time. Sorry about the mix-up at Kimbros! Donna

Q

Donna when will you be back in North Carolina again? It would be nice for
you to come to the Dunn Center at North Carolina Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, NC


Donna Ulisse responded on 11/22/2014

I don't know when we will be in North Carolina again. I know we just booked a festival in Petersburg, VA on June 4 next year which is only 1.5 hours from Rocky Mt. so maybe our agent can get us something in NC to go with that! Thanks, Donna
