Donna Sweeney's deep passion and respect for Blues began to develop at age eleven, when her brother introduced her to Howlin’ Wolf’s "Smokestack Lightning". “Of course, at that age, I had no idea what the song was about.” says Donna, “But there was something there that reached deep down and grabbed the very core of my being, and it never let go. From that moment on I was hooked on Blues.”
Donna Sweeney sings the Blues with the soul of Big Mama Thornton, the passion of Koko Taylor and the sassiness of Maria Muldaur. She is an energetic and dynamic performer who possesses a unique vocal style enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
