      Nellie McKay is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who was described by The New Yorker as “funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented.”

      Since her last album, “My Weekly Reader,” Nellie has indulged an extended run in the award-winning off-Broadway hit “Old Hats” and written three acclaimed musical biographies: “I Want to Live!” the story of Barbara Graham, third woman executed in the gas chamber at San Quentin; “Silent Spring: It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature,” an exploration of environmental pioneer Rachel Carson; and her latest, “A Girl Named Bill: The Life and Times of Billy Tipton,” named one of the Best Concerts of 2014 by The New York Times.

      Nellie has previously released five full-length albums, won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of Polly Peachum in the Broadway production of “The Threepenny Opera” and performed onscreen in the films “PS I Love You” and “Downtown Express,” as well as writing original music for the Rob Reiner film “Rumor Has It” and contributing to the Emmy-winning documentary, “Gasland.”

      Nellie’s music has been heard on the TV shows “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Weeds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NCIS” and “Nurse Jackie”; and she has appeared on numerous TV shows including The Late Show with David Letterman (with the Brooklyn Philharmonic).

      Nellie's appearance at the Towne Crier promises to be an extraordinary evening of entertainment!
