I’m very happy to announce that another one of my songs from “Fa La La” has received recognition! “Gold and Myrrh” is a FINALIST in the 2016 Great American Song Contest. Over 1800 songwriters from 44 countries entered their work, yet this song stood out to the judges. This is the second song on ‘Fa La La’ to be honored. “Silence Tonight” has received numerous accolades since it’s release.

The inspiration for the song “Last Train Out” came from Lynna’s memories of her mother Elsie. She took the train many times during her youth, and later in life when she fell ill with Alzheimer’s, would ask if it was time for the train. She lost her battle in 2013 but her memory lives on in this song.
Jim and Lynna’s 2016 release,“Heart and Soul, Blood and Bone”, has garnered top placement on bluegrass, americana and folk radio all across the US and Canada.

This past December, I had the amazing privilege of being part of the Lucy Stone Singers, a fabulous group of talented women who said YES when Susan Cattaneo put out the call to be part of the recording of, “Sisters of A Different Skin”.
Susan Cattaneo, is an award-winning songwriter and Berklee professor, and a true advocate for women’s rights around the world. Recalling the inspiration for its creation, she says, “This song started as an a cappella voice memo in my phone. Many recent events in the news inspired me to write this song. It feels like it’s an important time to talk about gender equality and empowerment. I had this image of this chorus of women of all ages, races and musical genres singing it. Fortunately, I’ve worked with many wonderful women in the New England music scene, and they all came together to sing it with me.”
All proceeds from sales of the single will go to Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. Please support this important organization and buy the song here!
Join Nancy and Susan for an intimate concert celebrating Tidings of the Season!
December 10th, Nancy and Susan take the stage at Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham, MA at 8pm. These two award-winning songwriters have been collaborating on new songs and their harmony is absolutely gorgeous.
“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.”
“Cattaneo has been playing around Boston and its environs for a while, sometimes solo and sometimes with stellar players. She rocks with the best of them and also sings ballads so sweetly and lovingly that it can bring tears to the eyes of those listening”

It’s hard to know where to begin, other than to say “Thank you” to the many people who travelled with me this past month. The hosts who booked me to play in their venues, the artists I shared the stage with, the friends who made sure there was a roof over my head, and the wonderful audiences who came to hear my songs and stories – you ALL made this tour successful and memorable. I’m filled with gratitude and can’t wait to do it all over again.
