Mary Dettman
Artist / Program Description: 

"You could have heard a pin drop."
"Donna allows us to laugh in the face of cancer."
"Every chair was filled. You had the audience in the palm of your hand."

Donna has been wowing audiences since 1990 with her tales of life, love, and laughter. Her zany folksongs and haunting ballads add a touch of the old-time troubadour. Heroes and heroines outwit their foes with pluck, ingenuity, and sometimes a little bit of magic. Her interactive programs are full of chants and rhymes that will have everyone singing along (yes, even middle-school students)!

Her newest program is A Bend in the Road: One Woman's Journey through Breast Cancer. Donna's stories, songs, and poetry take her audiences on an emotional roller coaster ride down her road of discovery, apprehension, and her ultimate determination to survive. Dare to expect joy in your life!
