Music on Madison Presents Nessa
Nessa is a Celtic fusion group led by multi-instrumentalist/vocalist, Kelly McDermott known for her flute technique and soulful voice. She is joined by co-founder/multi-instrumentalist Rob Crozier to research and arrange the music of Nessa. This hard-working team re-imagines the ballads and dances of the U.K. and Europe, uniquely blending elements of classical, folk, jazz, funk and world music to create rich, complex musical hybrids.
The band moves audiences with funky reels, barn burner jigs, and deep, soulful glimpses of old stories. Nessa has a mystical, dreamy side akin to the music of Loreena McKennitt, an energetic aspect not unlike Solas, a touch of global fusion ala Pentangle and Eilleen Ivers, and a depth and dimension similar to Brian Eno.
Based in Michigan, Nessa will wrap up a busy, music-filled weekend performing at Evanston's World Arts & World Music Fest by performing Sunday evening at the MO's Madison Room.
