On Thursday, February 18 the Cloverdale Arts Alliance is pleased to present Americana Night with the Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band. With lush vocals and a hot band, comes a set filled with high energy originals and vintage country covers featuring Pete Grant on pedal steel, Jim Kerwin on string bass and Jon Arkin on percussion.
This is truly an all-star band. Nell Robinson has been described as a “modern day Patsy Cline” and “one of the freshest voices in roots music.” Her “Rose of No Man’s Land” CD, produced by Joe Henry, featured Kris Kristofferson, John Doe, Maxine Hong Kingston and more and is now a PBS special airing throughout the country. Grammy participant for work on a tribute to Bill Monroe and Flatpicking Guitar champion, Jim Nunally tours with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and John Reischman & the Jaybirds. Pete Grant’s resume looks like a who’s who of music, including the Grateful Dead, Guy Clark, Hoyt Axton, the Dillards and many more. Jim Kerwin, considered simply one of the best string bass players in the country, has also played with David Grisman for over 30 years and is featured on all his Jerry Garcia recordings. Jon Arkin is a go-to percussionist and Jazz School instructor, with decades of experience on recordings and performances from Madison Square Garden and the Montreal Jazz Festival to every major Bay Area venue.
