Shaker Barn Music: Nellie McKay
Aug 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Nellie McKay isn’t the type to offer an unthinking inducement to romance. A singer-songwriter drawn to the inherent tensions between surface and substance, she has earned her reputation for unruly drolleries. After all, this is someone who recorded an album in glowing tribute to the ingénue Doris Day and later built a poignant cabaret show around the transgender jazz pianist Billy Tipton. (Other subjects of her wry inquiry have included the environmentalist Rachel Carson and the comedienne Joan Rivers.) The bottom line for McKay, it would seem, is that there’s always another level, a deeper layer. Opener: Wallace Field.
