Two genre-bending singer-songwriters—one incredible night! One of a kind singer/actress Nellie McKay beguiles audiences with her inspired song choices and deliciously otherworldly worldview: “Nellie McKay is all over the place—wonderfully so. Whether she’s delivering social commentary while strumming a ukulele…or exorcising the spirit of a devilish former lover over festive bed of New Orleans jazz…this mercurial New York singer-songwriter brings both ample wit and equally generous melodies” (Rolling Stone). Singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux packs a double wallop: a compelling ability to reinvent familiar tunes through her intricately nuanced vocal shadings, and a poet’s gift for creating memorable new work. “Peyroux has the gift of totally inhabiting a song, whatever the mood” (The Telegraph, UK).

This performance will last approximately 2 hours and have a 20 minute intermission
