Celtic music, her repertoire includes: early country, blues, swing,

extensively throughout the St. Louis, River Bend Area in a variety of venues,
from coffee houses and wineries to park concerts and festivals, representing both Irish and
Appalachian musical traditions. She can often be seen performing "roots" music
at "living history" events both in Illinois and Missouri. Nancy has been a
featured performer at the First Night celebration at Lewis and Clark Community

been able to devote more time to performing and composing music.
