Donnelle Brooks started writing songs from an early age - it's her way of interpreting the things she sees, hears and feels.   Her music ranges from rock-and-roll to folk.

Donnelle's main influences are songwriters such as Jewel and Tim Rogers, whom she admires for their ability to write a well turned phrase. Indeed, the imagery that can be conjured up with powerful lyrics is one of the key motivators in her song-writing.

Chris Edwards will be in-charge of sound during the afternoon.

Friends of Peacehaven Botanic Park would like to acknowledge and thank Heritage Bank Highfields Community Branch and Progressive Community Crows Nest Ltd. for sponsoring the music program.    Our thanks also go to Charter Hall and High Country Herald for their advertising and promotional support.
