A number of styles of folk music are the focus of Nancy Lippincott's double CD release, In Folk-Us. The title is a great play on words, reminding us that it is we, the people, who make the music of our time. The CD cover shows Nancy with her guitar and dogs focused in the center against a colorful, out of focus hillside. You get the feeling these images and songs are special to her. The instrumental selections are presented by those who have mastered their craft.
