Nancy Dutra

This is the second of five episodes I recorded on the Victoria Day long weekend at the Twisted Pines Art and Music Festival in my hometown of Midland, Ontario. This is a double header. First I talk with Paul Northcott and Deb Brown, the principal organizers of the festival, then there’s a session with Nancy Dutra recorded in a long, boomy corridor at the North Simcoe Recreation Centre, where the festival took place. My apologies for the sound quality. I’ve learned my lesson that Arena lobbies are not designed to be recording studios.

Nancy Dutra is a Toronto singer-songwriter who performs at open-stages, folk clubs and festivals throughout Ontario. Her music tends to borrow heavily from old country and gospel music and she has a beautiful voice. She has a demo CD available at her website ( or and she is currently working on her debut CD. She was accompanied by John Wort Hannam.

Upcoming episodes recorded at the Twisted Pines Art and Music Festival include shows with Wendell Ferguson, Hamell on Trial and Magoo.
