Nellie McKay

Singer Songwriter, Pianist, & Actress plays Music from her Brand New EP "Bagatelles" & more!  Live on the Nighttown Stage!  

TWO NIGHT ENGAGEMENT - Thursday 11/14 & Sunday 11/17  

Sister Orchid is Nellie’s seventh album, starting with Get Away From Me  (“a tour de force” – The New York Times), including Normal As Blueberry Pie:  A Tribute to Doris Day (“among the killer overhauls of American standards” – The New York Times) and My Weekly Reader, music of the ‘60s (“..kicks serious butt. The results are beautiful.” – PopMatters), her second collaboration with famed Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick.  

She has won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of Polly Peachum on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera, performed onscreen in the films PS I Love You and Downtown Express, and her music was used in Rumor Has It, Monster-in-Law, PS I Love You, Gasland, Last Holiday and Private Life. 

McKay co-created and starred in the award-winning off-Broadway hit Old Hats and has written three acclaimed musical biographies.

Nellie’s music has been heard on Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Weeds, Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS, Nurse Jackie, and SMILF, and she has appeared on TV shows including The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Ferguson, and The View.  Nellie has made numerous radio appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, A Prairie Home Companion, eTown, and Marion McPartland’s Piano Jazz.  

A recipient of PETA’s Humanitarian Award and the Humane Society’s Doris Day Music Award in recognition of her dedication to animal rights, Nellie is an annoyingly vocal advocate for feminism, civil rights and other deeply felt progressive ideals.  She is currently part of the campaign to get horse-drawn carriages off the streets of New York City.  She would like to be friends with Russia, the country with the most nuclear weapons in the world.  We must all be very kind to one another.

“Thanks to (McKay), the Great American Songbook has a living, breathing present as well as a glorious past” – Boston Globe 

“McKay comes on as a Harlem Holly Golightly, a social activist with a disarming mastery of pop vernacular.” – Los Angeles Times
