More Info

Album release show!


Nessa is a Celtic fusion group led by multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Kelly McDermott, known for her dazzling flute technique and beautiful, 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 UK and Europe, uniquely blending elements of classical, folk, jazz, funk and world music to create rich, complex musical hybrids. With no shortage of virtuosity, Nessa includes some of southeastern Michigan’s hottest players. 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, and a touch of global fusion a la Pentangle and Eileen Ivers. Says Trinity House's Bill Keith: "These world-class musicians bring the energy of world music, the thought-provoking nature of folk music, and the edge of rock to create something that is truly unique.  You'll leave the show captivated by Kelly's beautiful voice and the stunning music of Nessa."
