Global Dance Party

The Global Dance Party series offers an exciting opportunity to experiment with dance styles from around the globe. Each evening will feature a dance class followed by two hours of music from live bands or DJs in our Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall.

Nessa is a Celtic fusion group led by multi-instrumentalist/vocalist, Kelly McDermott. 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 U.K. and Europe, uniquely blending elements of classical, folk, jazz, funk and world music to create rich, complex musical hybrids. Nessa 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 global fusion that bridges Pentangle with Olatunji.

“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.” - Trinity House Theatre
