Nancy Mackenzie

Nancy Mackenzie’s third book of poetry, Communion, was recently released, continuing the philosophical explorations of Soul’s Flight and The Illuminated Life, with a wink and a nod to her collaborative CD and anthology Eyeing the Magpie. Recent performances of the poems, with keyboard and mandolin, at venues as varied as the Amberlea Meadow Dressage Festival, Government House for Alberta Art’s Days, The Kasbar, last year’s Words and Wine event, and Ekstasis Edition’s Summer Solstice reading have brought audiences into the poet’s concern for stolen habitat, appreciation for ancestors and resonance with echoes / part eternal part pure now.
