Featuring Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally w/The Good Luck Charm
and Tom Rigney & Flambeau
American Roots duo touring in support of their new live PBS special in a double billed concert with zydeco master.
The greatest country music was laid down before 1965, that's the vintage where Nell & Jim found their sound. Think Buck, Loretta, Dolly, Johnny, George and Tammy. Vocals rooted in deep southern tradition, close harmonies, award-winning guitar, the lush sound of the pedal steel from Pete Grant, rich tones of Jim Kerwin’s string bass and the riveting precision of Jon Arkin’s percussion – make for a fun take on classic and original country music.
From San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival to Washington’s Kennedy Center – from Winnemucca to Carbondale - and now on PBS! Y’all just come on down and see the show for yourselves. nellandjim.com
"Tom Rigney combines technical virtuosity with the drive and enthusiasm of a great dance fiddler. Drawing on influences as diverse as Cajun, Gypsy, Celtic, and blues, Rigney covers a full emotional range from the melancholy of Consolation through the wild dance-frenzy of Hounded. The interplay is spectacular. . . Philip Campbell, Fiddler Magazine

Two leading innovators of the guitar, GRAMMY nominated Windham Hill superstar, Alex de Grassi and GRAMMY winning classical guitarist, Andrew York, join forces to fuse the sounds and traditions of steel and nylon into a unique duo program. With roots in seemingly different traditions - de Grassi as a largely self-taught folk and jazz musician and York as a trained classical artist - a mutual passion for exploring all types of music has led these two acclaimed composers/performers to branch out and find a common ground. In their music steel-string and classical guitar interact seamlessly. Juxtaposing original compositions, improvisation, and unlikely arrangements of everything from Monk to Piazzolla to the Police, their duo performances take audiences for a ride through astonishingly diverse terrain. This collaboration is sure to delight!
