    More More The world needs more Margie Rozenkranz Producer Albany NY It is a vast understatement to simply say that Nancy Tucker is loved by the Falcon Ridge audience Yet in its simplicity it is to the very point The why of it is more complex Children are swept up by Nancy s zany life lessons in all the ways she can communicate them Both kids and adults are astounded by her prowess as a master guitarist songwriter comedienne and singer enough talent for 3 or 4 performers surely But all this talent is just the conduit for a great communing and bearing of the soul a huge sharing of laughter and introspection and feeling great This is some of the why Nancy Tucker is forever loved by the Falcon Ridge Festival audience Anne Saunders Falcon Ridge Festival Hillsdale NY Add the footloose physical high jinks of Carol Burnett to the irreverent verbal wit of Paula Poundstone the incandescent guitar acumen of Leo Kottke and the mixed media brilliance of Laurie Anderson shake well and the astounding sum equals Nancy Tucker The Daily Gazette Schenectady NY Her stunning guitar work clear voice and fine songwriting tell me she will be around when the flash artists have gone Tom Paxton Nancy Tucker totally captivated our state conference with her dead pan humor wry observations clever lyrics and superb guitar accompaniment Marion Brown Past President Upstate NY Region National Association of Educational Buyers For ardent followers of life in the nineties Nancy Tucker s mission is to uncover the places where the darkest moments intersect with the most ridiculous She does this without equal The Concord Journal Concord MA My favorite musical discovery of the festival was Nancy Tucker an unnervingly talented combination of master guitar instrumentalist insightful songwriter and standup comic

    activity of children Playfulness was one of the main avenues of learning for me as a child and so I use it as often as I can I remember my sixth grade teachers trying to tell us with punishment with reprimand with exasperation over and over that we were behaving inappropriately and that we were not ready for junior high school It all went in one ear and out the other It was not until May of that year that the teachers decided to put on a play to show us in a humorous way how we were behaving We all laughed together teachers and students alike at our antics and how ridiculous we looked Through playfulness we got it  I m still applying that lesson in my own life to this day Though play is planned within each performance I do there is also a spontaneous element that is essential to keeping the interest of an audience Children especially need to know the performer is right there in the moment I always try to react playfully to a sneeze for example by leaping up or falling backwards There is no way to plan a spontaneous reaction so I try to listen and watch carefully for what the audience is doing and that helps me stay connected and spontaneous   Of course none of us could incorporate play and spontaneity into a performance without keeping our own inner children alive I try always to look at the world from a different angle sort of warped and tilted For example while driving long hours in my car I try to use my imagination I like to imagine that one day I ll see a giant pair of scissors cutting along the dotted line on the highway I like to
