I wrote about Florida singer/songwriter Nancy Wilson Buckler not long ago, explaining I’d always known her as a fellow grandmother. Then I discovered her music. Buckler’s work is heartfelt, and many of the songs will touch those who place family first. We listened to her CD recently on a trip to Carolina, and besides her lyrics, her voice is one of those memorable, well-defined instruments you won’t forget.
Nancy—I consider her a friend, so I’m using her first name here—isn’t heavily promoting her work or aiming for a label. She’s the most authentic kind of artist, doing her creative work simply for the joy of doing it and sharing it with others.
Rebecca and I (and a number of others) are trying to get Nancy to do a song or two at one of Rebecca’s shows. Thus far, we haven’t been persuasive enough, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving up.
Right now the gift purchasing season is full speed ahead. Remember local artists and craftmakers when you seek that special present. Nancy’s CD is perfect for listening under any circumstances. I like to listen to her music when I find a little leisure time or when I work on my poems and other writings.
Today we’re adding her CD to our Arts Market. I’m constantly looking for new products to place in inventory, so feel free to recommend works by other indie artists. Proceeds from any sales in the Arts Market can help us continue to publish this website, so please consider visiting and shopping there.
