NCSU Center Stage presents the Turtle Island Quartet with Nellie McKay
Start Date: 10/29/2013Start Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description:

The delightful Nellie McKay – a witty singer-songwriter, actress (The Threepenny Opera on Broadway and P.S. I Love You on film), pianist, comedienne and ukulele player – joins forces with the two-time Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet to present a kaleidoscopic view of the music of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920s.

Adopting the title of the beloved Strayhorn classic, they’re calling the program A Flower is a Lovesome Thing.

Turtle Island Quartet has toured internationally for over 25 years; they’re renowned for employing the string quartet form to shed new light on the timeless joy and beauty contained in the greatest music of the American jazz masters. Their acclaimed Center Stage concert in January 2012 featured the music of John Coltrane.

Pre-show discussion with members of the Turtle Island Quartet, 7pm, 2nd floor lobby.
