Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Society 2019 Presents
Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally Band
Friday, June 21st, 7:30pm (doors open at 7.00pm) Tickets $18 adv / $20 door
The Nell & Jim Band bring together genre-busting artists and joyful music infused with folk, bluegrass, americana, roots, swing, jazz, and blues. Alt-Roots, Folkbilly - whatever you call it - it's original, well done, and a pleasure to hear. Featuring Nell Robinson on flute & vocals, and Jim Nunally on guitar & vocals, with backing by Jim Kerwin on upright bass, and Alex Aspinall on percussion, this configuration of the band gave an outstanding performance for us about a year ago.
Nell (aka Hilary Perkins) started her professional singing career later in life, "after 25 years of singing in my car", but has one of the finest voices in roots music. She honors her southern roots by taking, as her stage name, that of her Alabama grandmother.
Jim, as performer, composer, and record producer has been a staple of Bay Area bluegrass and traditional music for a quarter of a century. He has worked with many bands (including David Grisman) and has received Grammy and IBMA awards and has twice won the Western Flatpicking Guitar Championship.
