NessaCELTIC ROOTS, FOLK & WORLD FUSION
Nessa Nessa watch
Nessa is a Detroit area ensemble led by Kelly McDermott. McDermott is classically trained with three degrees in flute performance, two of them advanced degrees from Temple University in Philadelphia. Nessa’s music reflects McDermott’s deep passion for rediscovering and rearranging old Celtic and European folk songs, along with clever, soulful arrangements of classical themes. Nessa’s combination of classical, jazz, and Celtic influences with accents of world music and soul is quite unique. This fun, funky ensemble has depth and color and includes some of southeastern Michigan’s finest players: Kelly McDermott on vocals and flute; Rob Crozier on bass, guitar, percussion and vocals; and David Mosher on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and vocals.

KlezmephonicKLEZMER MUSIC
Klezmephonic Ann Arbor Klezmer Trio listen

Rollicking freylakhs, sweet cradle songs, and hot American vaudeville tunes are brought to life by the Ann Arbor-based band Klezmephonic. Their sound stems from the Eastern European Jewish folk music of the 19th and 20th centuries and is sprinkled with swing and Roma stylings. The clarinet (Jennie Lavine) and violin (Henrik Karapetyan) sing, wail and moan over the driving, dance-inducing rhythms of bass (Dave Sharp), accordion (Will Cicola), guitar and banjo (Alex Belhaj). The musicians bring a mix of classical and jazz training and years of experience interpreting traditional styles.
