A Taste of Litchfield Hills, CT.

Hi there,

Nancy Carey Johnson here. I recently found out that Lakeville, Ct. the town next door to the one I live in is hosting "A Taste of Litchfield Hills". In it's 25th year it is something like a cross between a harvest festival and an appreciation of the Litchfield Hills area. Anyway, they are having several musicians perform for their guests and I've applied to be one of those entertainers. I REALLY want to be a part of it, so wish me luck!

Mizza's Pizza, Lakeville, CT.

Hi, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. In an earlier blog entry I mentioned knowing a bass player named Charlie from jamming at a place called Mizza's Pizza in Lakeville Ct. Just thought that if you happen to be in the area and want a nice, friendly, family place with really good, reasonably priced food, you should check out Mizza's. You'll find it on Ethan Allen Street, directly across from the old train depot that houses WQQQ Radio station. Read more about Mizza's Pizza, Lakeville, CT. »

Shoes to Fill...

'Evening, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. I forgot to tell you that a couple of weeks ago I participated in a songwriting contest and one of the guys who was there later said to me "You remind me so much of Wynona, in fact you could easily fill her shoes!" WOW. What on earth do you say to that other than humbly mumble "Thank you!"? That woman can SING like it's nobody's business! Don't know that I could actually fill those shoes, but I sure would like to try them on for at least a little while and give it a shot! Meanwhile, have a great night! - Nancy Read more about Shoes to Fill... »

2 More Feathers...

... In my cap that is! Hi there, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. Just found out today that BOTH of the songs I submitted to the Billboard Songwriting contest received an honorable mention! The first being Ballad of Renewal-this is the second time it's won an honorable mention in a songwriting competition- the other being Note From God...- I realize that I didn't "Win" the contest, but the truth of the matter is life is hard, consequently, the way you actually win is by playing, and playing I am.

Hi there, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. And that's kind of the point to this blog. Since I've started to write my own songs a few years back, I sing them a lot. But I was just looking at Desperado and thinking how much I love that song. I've been singing it since I was a kid and all these years later not only does it still have meaning for me, I NEVER tire of singing it! My only regret is that I didn't write it!!! But if I'm ever so blessed as to be able to write such a song, I'll let you know! Nancy Read more about Desperado »
