Musician Nellie McKay is part cabaret, part sparkly pop mixed with a cutting wit and a sharply tuned social conscience. A gifted entertainer and an impressive musician, McKay frequently performs on NPR’s “Mountain Stage” and on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion;” her songs have been featured on TV shows, including “Mad Men,” “Weeds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “NCIS,” and in the Emmy-winning documentary film, Gasland.
McKay’s most recent recording, My Weekly Reader, is a collection of classic pop tunes from the 1960s, which The New York Times calls “a tour de force from a sly, articulate musician who sounds comfortable in any era.”
“Supremely gifted, charming, and darkly funny”—The Washington Post.
