2024 gigs announced

Hi! It’s been a while since I announced shows but I have some lovely ones coming up with James Fagan, Melrose Quartet, Melrose Ceilidh Quintet and the mighty wall of sound that is The Melsons! Check the GIGS list.

Hope to see you at a show or a festival this year!


It’s Bandcamp Friday

Once a month during lockdown, Bandcamp are waiving their fee, meaning all money from purchases of music on these days go directly to the artist. To celebrate, I have made my debut solo album “Sweet Visitor” available as a Bandcamp download for the first time today. Grab a copy today! (Physical CD sold out).


A Leon Rosselson Song A Day!

Today, 1st May 2020, I am launching a new project and I’m really excited about it. Every day in May, I will be releasing a new video of me performing my favourite Leon Rosselson songs. This incredible writer has had a massive influence on my own work and is simply a huge part of my life. I have set up a brand new Youtube channel, Nancy Kerr Music, which you can subscribe to. I would be honoured to accept any donations you see fit towards this project and you can make these at www.paypal.me/nancykerrmusic.

And here it is, my first Leon song for May 1st – The Ant and the Grasshopper. Please subscribe, please share, and please enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N95HRc61bg
