Thursday morning began bright, clear, and a little cool for the 64th semi-annual Gettysburg Festival at Granite Hill Campground just outside Gettysburg, PA. The vendors were busily setting up while the jam campers, aware they'd be on stage in only a few hours were working hard to prepare their stage performance.

Donna Ullisse's story (a girl comes to Nashville with a recording contract, loses it and toils in the song writing and demo fields for two decades before emerging in her own right as a creative and vocal force) is the stuff that movies are made of. At Gettysburg Donna charmed the audience and delivered a fine performance as well as an interesting and personally revealing song writing workshop. In a few short years developing on the festival circuit, she developed into a winning performer delivering her own signature works. She's earned a much wider audience and better spots in the lineup.
