Music on the Porch – Nancy Beaudette
July 23 @ 1:00 pm
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.On-stage and off, Nancy practices hometown hospitality, taking special pleasure in “greeting you at the door.” Come to one of Beaudette’s shows and you will experience first-hand all the warmth and welcome of a Canadian kitchen party! Bring a blanket, chair and picnic basket, sit down on the Common, and enjoy an afternoon of music.
The program is free but donations to the Shirley Meeting House are welcome.
