Donna Herula At Stage Left Cafe

Acoustic Guitar Magazine named native Chicagoan Donna Herula as one of the top 10 up and coming resonator guitar players in an article, “Down and Dirty: 10 contemporary resonator players talk about their love for that nasty sound.” On October 16th, 2016, Donna was inducted into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame at Buddy Guy’s Legends.

The Donna Herula Trio includes Donna Herula (vocals and resonator slide guitar), Tony Wittrock (resonator guitar), and Marc Edelston (upright bass).

Small Potatoes - Featured Performer
Stage Left Open Mic
April 13 @ 7pm CST | HYBRID EVENT!
Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso are Small Potatoes, a Chicago-based folk duo. They say “it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as ‘Celtic to Cowboy’.”

Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition have made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, “one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit.”

Then come on out to Stage Left Cafe April 13
