Nellie McKay #2

Nellie played at the Wow Hall for us on an antique piano.

When I saw her last she was performing a musical she wrote about the trans man jazz band leader Billy Tipton. many of the songs were traditionals from the era when Billy was playing. There was lots of political humor and relevant comments on gender and race. Thank you Nellie for being so wonderful and feisty. Great backup band too!

Nellie glows and and she radiates talent and humor. Her cover choices are fascinating and delightfully reimagined and her originals are charming and quirky. I drew her years ago too! Check out this old post
