Donovan's eagerly awaited solo album, set for release on 19 April, marks a return to her country roots and the essence of her artistic beginnings.

It reflects her musical evolution from childhood performances of country classics, through family-led church songs at community funerals, to her later experiences in funk, soul, and R&B.

With more than 20 years on the road, Ms Donovan has taken her impactful stories and music worldwide, opening for artists like Paul Kelly, The Teskey Brothers, Paul Grabowsky, and the late Uncle Archie Roach AC and Aunty Ruby Hunter.

Ticketing information for Songs, Stories and Soul from Family and Country is available via The Potato Shed website.
