 DMi is proud to  produce   Wendy Colonna & Elizabeth Wills, with Claire Hinkle  on 8:00 pm  February 3, 2018.    Get your tickets now at  HistoricMansfield.Tix.com .      Mansfield audiences love  Wendy  Colonna, as do music-lovers across the state. The Austin-American Statesman wrote “Wendy Colonna is not just a singer-songwriter, she’s a force of nature.” Hailing from the gulf coast of Louisiana and calling Austin, TX home since 2000, Colonna is a regular southern renaissance woman: a seasoned troubadour, yogi, bookworm, adventurer, pollination ecology-enthusiast and hula-hooper. But it’s her songwriting and voice that draw audiences in like bees to nectar.    Wendy’s resonant, signature voice is grit-infused-honey and her songs echo swampy southern tales of loss, mortality, joy, reclaimed innocence and celebration. With ease, she moves from a sweet whisper to a full on bayou-soul-shout without skipping a beat.    Wendy will be joined by  Elizabeth Wills , Texas-based singer-songwriter and Americana artist who has a voice that Dallas Morning News compared to “female singer/songwriter greats such as Carly Simon, Shawn Colvin, and Sarah McLachlan.” Her songs – real and riveting – keep listeners engaged from start to finish.     Opening the show will be local up-and-coming favorite  Claire Hinkle , who just released her debut CD titled "Let it Out".    Many thanks go to Leasor Crass, P.C. in Downtown Mansfield for sponsoring this wonderful concert.      Get your tickets now at  HistoricMansfield.Tix.com .
