Acoustic Routes Concerts and Stony Lake Brewing are celebrating St. Patrick's day with Nessa the acclaimed 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. Backed by virtuoso guitar and percussion, this hard-working team re-imagines the ballads and dances of Ireland and other countries across the UK 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 a la Pentangle and Eilleen Ivers, and a depth and dimension similar to Brian Eno.
