Walker, Nancy Nancy Walker trio Literature- Creative Writing,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
The Nancy Walker trio Big Shoulders. The Zucchini Brothers. And that's just for starters. Nancy's voice has found a home with the trio, whether singing her own melodies, classics from the American songbook or selections from the deep catalog of the Old Town School of Folk Music. Have you lived until you've heard Nancy sing "Bury Me Beneath The Willow?" She's just an comfortable laying back and letting Larry and Sam stretch out on an original instrumental, with Larry's guitar snaking along Sam's expansive drum beat. Some bands get by on style, some get by on substance. Some, instead, catch the magic that flashes when the two poles meet. The Nancy Walker trio is the real thing.
