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”

Regular $18 ~ Senior 65+/Student $17 ~ Member $15 ~ Child U12 $9

Last Train Out is First In Our Books!

July 25th, 2016

Screen+Shot+2016-06-25+at+9.18.01+PMI’m so pleased to announce that a song I co-wrote with Jim and Lynna Woosley will be released on August 4th on their new CD, “Heart and Soul, Blood and Bone”. This exceptional CD is the latest installment from this husband-wife duo. The songwriting, musical creativity, guest artists and performances of these original songs is refreshing and powerful.

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 2014 release, “The Road That Brings You Home” garnered top placement on bluegrass, americana and folk radio all across the US and Canada, and “Heart and Soul, Blood and Bone” is destined to have no less impact on the airwaves and in collectors libraries.

It’s a fabulous album, available on itunes or directly from the artist’s website.

Concert Review: Nancy Beaudette & The Kelly Girls in Framingham, Massachusetts

May 01, 2016


TheKellyGirls3Jon Pappalardo was in the audience at our recent show and wrote a wonderful review of our performance. It’s so nice to hear praise and kind words for our efforts. Thanks Jon!

“I’ve been a fan of Beaudette’s music for a few years now but I’d yet to see her live until this April 23 concert. I had a feeling the show would be special; her latest album South Branch Road is exquisite, but I didn’t know how far it would exceed my expectations.”

“The cultural immersion kicked into high gear when The Kelly Girls took the stage in the second half. The four-piece Celtic band, of which Beaudette is a part along with Christine Hatch, Aisling Keating and Theresa Gerene, performed songs that traversed centuries, generations and even ancestry.

Their set was richly layered with historical significance and a captivating approachability. They opened strong, with their tight harmonies giving way to infectious fiddle-drenched instrumentation.”

“I came away having witnessed a unique bond between friends making music simply out of passion for the art. The Kelly Girls, the epitome of a tightly in synch ensemble, left me in the best possible place – wanting more and more. If you ever get a chance to see them live, hopefully accompanied with a Beaudette solo set, I’m sure you’ll come away feeling exactly as I did that evening. Make it a point to seek out a performance; I know for sure you won’t regret it.”

A Fairy Tale Life? A Musical Premier!

March 14, 2016

A Fairy Tale Life - Curtain CallThe world premier of “A Fairy Tale Life? A Middle School Musical” was held at Luther Burbank Middle School in Lancaster, MA on Friday, March 11, 2016, to a full house and jubilant cast and crew.

Award winning Canadian singer and songwriter, Nancy Beaudette, and writer and playwright, Paula Castner, have combined their talents to produce a whimsical play about teenage angst and the role of choices. Ebullient, thoughtful songs and embellished, realistic characters make for an entertaining amalgamation.

Four high school students – Josh, Marissa, Brian, and Kelly – wrestle with dating, making friends, desires versus limitations, and self-esteem. All the while, the Fairy Godmother has brought the Evil Queen to watch the teenage dramas unfold as part of the Evil Queen’s rehabilitation for putting Snow White to sleep. Josh, Marissa, Brian, and Kelly wish their lives could match the fairy tales they grew up listening to, and the Evil Queen blames Snow White for all her problems. How all five come to learn lessons about living will regale audiences of all ages.

For more information about the musical, and for licensing opportunities, email contact@moonlitpond.com. For sound clips and soundtrack details visit Fairy Tale Life? website.
