Medicine Show on The Road with Anny Celsi and Nelson Bragg
When TAXIM/RAGAZZA RECORDS ARTIST ANNY CELSI & BRIAN WILSON BAND MEMBER NELSON BRAGG recently visited I shared 2 radio shows and 2 concerts over three memorable days with them, here’s some impressions of the tour.
Anny and Nelson Background
With the release of Little Black Dress and Other Stories in 2006, Anny Celsi evoked comparisons to artists like Aimee Mann, Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega and Jackie DeShannon – all songwriters distinguished by a literary voice that is every bit as vital to the listener as her singing voice. Little Black Dress established Anny internationally as an artist worthy of a second listen. Her next album, Tangle-Free World, was produced by Nelson Bragg, whose regular gig is percussionist/vocalist for The Brian Wilson Band (he appears on Brian’s ‘Smile’ and ‘That Lucky Old Sun’ albums). Power-pop fans will also know Nelson by sight and sound, from his work with The Negro Problem, The Now People, The Quarter After, The Red Button and more. His own self-produced 2006 release Day Into Night received world-wide critical acclaim, with its lush harmonies and acoustic guitar sounds reminiscent of folk-pop artists such as America, Nilsson, The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
