Singer, songwriter, actress and former stand-up comedian Nellie McKay has a long list of artistic accomplishments, from albums to songs heard on TV shows such as "Mad Men," "Weeds," "Grey's Anatomy" and "NCIS."

"I think artistic endeavors choose you," McKay said during a phone interview from Brooklyn, N.Y. "It's like that old saying that children choose their parents. I feel that the art chose me to do these things."

She said this applies to her collaboration with the Turtle Island Quartet at the Eccles Center in Park City on Saturday, Jan. 4.
