Blending brave and honest songwriting, first-rate musicianship, and a huge helping of native Canadian wit, Nancy Beaudette is an artist of songs and heart. She was raised near Cornwall, Ontario, a place sustained by farming and millwork where French and English languages were friendly neighbours. Her songwriting delves into those roots, weaving a nostalgic past into lush songs of familial history, good-humored folly and poignant observations of life and loss. Nancy’s 2015 release of “South Branch Road”, her 8th CD, was received with critical acclaim, adding to the numerous accolades accrued through the years. Come to one of Nancy’s shows and you will experience first-hand all the warmth and welcome of a Canadian kitchen party!
“Beaudette is already a bright bulb on the independent music scene but the release of South Branch Road demands that light shine even brighter. I can’t even remember the last time I enjoyed an album this much. It’s beyond extraordinary!” – J. Pappalardo, My Kind of Country
“What I love about Beaudette’s work is how many layers there are to each track…And her prose evokes a type of energy and emotion that only few musicians are capable of arousing.” – Alec Cunningham, Journalist, Knoxville, TN
