Author Profile: Donald Heminitz

I would like to start the author profiles for all those that submitted tunes to the Baconworks Tune-smithing Contest with the winner.

Donald Heminitz plays the fife and the flute. He contributed two tunes: Misty Morning, which was the winner, and The Royal Troubadours.
