VIDEO: Stevie Nicks performs Rhiannon with Deer Tick

Stevie Nicks joined indie rockers Deer Tick on New Year’s Eve in New York for a performance of her 1975 Fleetwood Mac classic, “Rhiannon.”

The Brooklyn Bowl date was Deer Tick’s 6th straight night at the venue as they celebrated their 10th anniversary and closed out 2014 while welcoming in the New Year.

Nicks and the band share a history as friends, including the singer officiating the 2013 wedding of Deer Tick frontman John McCauley and singer Vanessa Carlton.

“Rhiannon” originally appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s self-titled 1975 album, which marked the debut of Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham with the group following the 1974 departure of guitarist Bob Welch.

Fleetwood Mac have been playing shows across North America in recent months; the trek sees the return of keyboardist Christine McVie, creating a reunion of the group’s hugely successful mid-1970s lineup.

The band return to the road for dates starting January 16 in Saint Paul, MN.
