Nellie McKay

A British-American singer-songwriter who made her Broadway debut nearly 15 years ago in The Threepenny Opera, Nellie McKay has amassed numerous accolades during her career. She’s seven acclaimed albums, won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of Polly Peachum in the aforementioned The Threepenny Opera, co-created and starred in the award-winning off-Broadway hit Old Hats, and has conceived and performed musical biographies of Barbara Graham, Rachel Carson, Joan Rivers, & Billy Tipton. Recently, she had a featured role in Ethan Coen’s A Play Is a Poem. Last year, McKay went to Sear Sound in New York, a place known for its vintage gear, to cut the EP, Bagatelles, which came out earlier this year. The album opens with her upbeat take on Burton Lane's "How About You?" and finds her offering a somber rendition of the Sinatra ballad "I Concentrate on You." These songs will likely make their way into tonight's set. (Niesel)
