Nellie McKay in Concert: 03/27/2007

November 5th, 2007

Episode 20 of 426 episodes

Nellie McKay in concert. With host Bob Boilen. Nellie McKay is a singer-songwriter known for her distinctive mix of jazz vocals and torch singing with cabaret pop, rock and a rap-inspired rants. Clever and darkly comedic, McKay layers caustic lyrics over jaunty piano lines, creating a surprising juxtaposition of conflicting moods that keep the listener guessing. Hear McKay in a live performance from the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, originally webcast on NPR.org Mar. 27, 2007.
