Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band

By | | No Comments

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, Jim Nunally on guitar & vocals, Jim Kerwin on bass fiddle, Jon Arkin on percussion, and Rob Reich on accordion & keyboards, this is truly an all-star band.

“A gorgeously harmonizing duo, Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally are roots musicians whose songs blur the boundaries of country, folk, and bluegrass” – DERK RICHARDSON, Peghead Nation, KPFA

“Personally penned tales such as “Complicated” and “Home’s Where I Long To Be” highlighted everyone’s seasoned abilities, their ability to change between the styles of Buck Owens, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Doc Watson on a dime was even more impressive.”– ANDY ARGYRAKIS, Chicago Concert Reviews

Tickets are $20. ($25 at the door)

Run Boy Run’s Tapestry of Timeless Bluegrass Sound

By | Archive | No Comments

While Run Boy Run’s bluegrass sound is rooted in the traditional style of the Appalachian South, they are part of a trend to revive innovation in American roots music. Their voices weave a spectacular tapestry around the fiddle’s tight rhythmic front, leading listeners on a musical journey that is dynamic, orchestral, and overflowing with beauty. The whole exceeds the sum of the parts as touches of classical, jazz, and folk express themselves through the old-time core of Run Boy Run’s unique sound.

“Hot instruments and beautiful, sweet harmony!” — Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion
