Nancy Northrup was born and raised in Vacaville — and on music.
“I’ve always had music as part of my life,” said the Winters resident, who plays guitar and mandolin when she performs.
Later this month, Northrup will be traveling to Waycross, Ga. to play at the Gram Parsons Festival.
She has a busy September and October scheduled locally too, with performances at Berryessa Gap and Seka Hills Winery.
She has also played at the Vacaville farmer’s market, and hosts open mics at Steady Eddy’s in Winters the last Saturday of each month and at Berryessa Gap the third Thursday of each month.
“I see Winters becoming this Renaissance place for art,” Northrup said.
There are many great musicians there who haven’t come out of their shell yet, she said.
She also has played at The Bluebird in Nashville twice.
