Co-Presented With Fiddling Cricket Presents
Following decades of success in their respective careers, Northern California musicians Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band are touring this year with a brand new album, BABY LETS TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME. Look for them this year at the Freshgrass Festival and the Vancouver Folk Festival.
Nunally, a Grammy and IBMA Award recipient, and Western Open flatpicking champion, tells No Depression, “We were driving home from L.A. on our tour, talking about getting off the main road and taking the long way. Then we actually did it! It made the trip so much more interesting and enjoyable, not taking the same route everyone else takes.”
Robinson, hot off a tour for her PBS show/album Rose of No Man’s Land, produced by Joe Henry and featuring Ramblin’
Jack Elliott, John Doe, and author Maxine Hong Kingston adds, “It’s about being in a different time in your life too. So, the idea of turning off the phone, not using the GPS, and maybe even getting lost – wouldn’t that be fun?”
Friends since 2009, Robinson and Nunally teamed up for a number of projects before falling in love. For Baby Lets Take the Long Way Home, they rustled up what became their dream team: pedal steel player Pete Grant (The Grateful Dead, Guy Clark), bass fiddle player Jim Kerwin (David Grisman, Jerry Garcia), and percussionist Jon Arkin (Lee Konitz, Gene Perla).
Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally have appeared at the Kennedy Center, Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, PBS series Music Gone Public, Kate Wolf Music Festival and Strawberry Music Festival.
