|The Center for Southern Folklore is proud to welcome
Nancy Apple to our FREE Live @ Noon Concert Series
May 20 from Noon to One
the reigning "Queen of Country in Memphis" by Memphis Magazineís City
Guide, and the "Princess of Twang" by Memphis' daily paper the
Commercial Appeal, Nancy Apple inexplicably reminds her audiences how special
it is to be in the presence of such individuality. From classic country tunes
to memorable ballads and honey-flavored cheatiní songs, Nancy rocks-and-rolls
with a twist that is twangled up in the blues. Itís genuine yíalterna-honk that
is outside the lines and far from ordinary. http://www.nancyapple.com/
Nancy plays drums, guitar, harmonica and dabbles on the
accordion and concertina. She has been nominated more than a dozen times for a
Premier Player Award in Memphis in the songwriting, Female Vocalist and
Community Service categories, and was a finalist in the International
Songwriting Competition in 2002 and 2003. She has appeared in numerous movies
and videos with the likes of Harvey Keitel, Linda Gail Lewis and Bridget Fonda,
has been endorsed by Gibson Guitars, played drums in The Hellcats and with
bluesman great Willie Cobbs. She did a stint as the Tennessee Triple Threat
with Duane Jarvis and Phil Lee, and is currently working on a duo record with
Rob McNurlin. Nancy has sung backup with Todd Snider, Dan Baird, Keith Sykes,
Mark Lindsay, Reba Russell, Barbara Blue, Jay Ruffin and Cory Branan. Nancy is
also known as The Cadillac Cowgirl, and has been a deejay on WEVL in Memphis
doing a Monday afternoon drive show (CarTunes) since 1996.
Her journey to the present has been as eclectic as she is. Born
and raised a Navy brat, Nancy Appleís immense talent became clear at a very
early age ó she went from crawling to dancing to Fats Domino.
Take note of Nancy Apple. She is the real deal, she plays your
heart strings and leaves you feeling energized, encouraged, refreshed. And she
still likes to dance to Fats Domino.
