Donna Scheer is a lovely young woman from Colorado who has
the ‘gift.’  What do I mean when I say someone has the ‘gift?’  It means
that person has an unstoppable desire to be a music maker.  Doesn’t
matter if it’s a guitar in their hands, or a dulcimer, or a zither, it’s
a person with a deep desire to write and play music.  A deep desire to
write words to share with friends and strangers alike.  A deep desire to
‘reveal’ one’s personality through music.  That’s what Donna Scheer
does.  This particular CD is just her lovely very folk-like voice and an
acoustic guitar.  I would have preferred the guitar to be down just a
bit so I can better hear her words, because the words are the secret
Donna shares with the entire universe.  How can I say that?   Well, who
knows who else is out there in the universe?  And, this recording is
here to stay.  It’s not going away, it’s here to stay, to share, to
hear, to reminisce, to remember.  Not all of these songs are Donna’s
originals, only four of them are, but she has selected some of the very
best folk style songs she could have possibly picked to represent her
voice and guitar backing.  One of my favorite cities in America is Santa
Fe, it’s just a beautiful one-of-a-kind city, it’s very personal, and
it’s very musical in all it’s being. That’s why Eliza Gilkyson was able
to write such a personal song about a town, and why I can connect to it
so easily, and I’ll be that’s what Donna feels too when she sings this
song.  Donna also plays lap dulcimer, mandolin, harmonica, ukulele,
Dobro and various other softer stringed instruments, all of it leaning a
little toward the soft folk sound I am so appreciative of.  I will
definitely send this CD along to the Rural Roots Music Commission who I
hope will take a good listen.  We would certainly welcome Donna to our
old-time music gathering in LeMars, Iowa, and I’m hoping the Rural Roots
folks hear the same thing I hear.  She would be so welcome at the
Village Stage where no microphones or electrical instrumentation barges
into an acoustic set of music.  Keep it up Donna.
