Feb. 17: 826DC Presents Kelley McRae  
(Washington, DC)— 826DC and the Museum of Unnatural History invite you to an acoustic performance of acclaimed singer and songwriter Kelley McRae and new music from her forthcoming album. In 2011, after seven years in Brooklyn and with a growing national fan base, Kelley McRae traded in her apartment for a VW camper van and hit the road. She and her husband sold everything, left New York City and since then have played over 100 shows, and drove more than 25,000 miles. McRae’s albums “Never Be” and “Highrises in Brooklyn” have found impressive fans: Paste Magazine gave her four stars, WNYC’s “Soundcheck” named her performance one of the year’s best. Her songs have been featured on MTV, in the Sundance film “Children of Invention,” on an international UNICEF commercial, a national American Airlines campaign, and on the hit TV show “Army Wives.” 
 Hosted by Tracy Sefl and Darius Tandon and sponsored by Cork Wine Bar and Tasting Room (, the event will benefit 826DC’s free programs for students ages 6 to 18. Admission to the event is $60, and tickets available for purchase at:
