Nellie McKay, a 21st Century bohemian folksinger who deals in offbeat piano pop with light Broadway and punk leanings, will be back at Fogartyville to perform from her new album.

Under the lonesome cry of the midnight train, stars twinkling over hillbilly lights in the mountain fog, McKay returns with her first album of original material in 13 years.
 
Recorded in Charleston, West Virginia with The Carpenter Ants and a roving retinue of musical compadres, “Hey Guys, Watch This” traces the haunted sounds of Appalachia to a renaissance of revelry.
 
“So unpack your washtub bass, fill up your red cup and pull on your sh*tkickers ‘cause the night is young and the moon is bright, even if we’re not.”
 

“Thanks to (McKay), the Great American Songbook has a living, breathing present as well as a glorious past” – Boston Globe

“McKay comes on as a Harlem Holly Golightly, a social activist with a disarming mastery of pop vernacular.” – Los Angeles Times

“..funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented.” – The New Yorker
