A gifted musician and songwriter, Nancy wrote well over 100 songs, many of which celebrated her love of the prairie and the West. She wrote songs in a variety of styles ranging from lively and upbeat western and standard swing to cowboy waltzes, heartfelt jazz ballads, and sweet and honest country love songs. She taught songwriting, guitar, and ukulele; recorded a number of albums of her original songs; and was in many bands, including (in Colorado) the Swing Chicks, the Cactus Crooners, Swing State, the Blue Mountain Ranch Hands, Gadzukes!, the Ringtones, and the Complete Unknowns, and (in Port Townsend) Bayou Boogie and the Silver Stars.
