Bookmark and Share

Northern California's acclaimed Americana quintet the Nell & Jim Band will return to The Palms Playhouse, in Winters, on Saturday, Feb. 16 for an album release concert for "Steel." Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $20 ($16 with student ID). Fronted by vocalist and flautist Nell Robinson and singer, guitarist and six-string banjoist Jim Nunally, the Nell & Jim Band plays fresh originals co-written by Robinson and Nunally and a few choice country and folk covers, all presented with a sound that braids together bluegrass, country, Americana and acoustic rock.

Nunally is no stranger to Palms audiences as he has played regionally many times in various groups including the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, John Reischman & The Jaybirds, his duo show with Keith Little, the annual Banjo Extravaganza and more. A noted acoustic guitarist known for his rich tone, fast runs and economy of movement, Nunally is also a singer in the country and bluegrass tradition, a solid songwriter and recently added six-string banjo to his musical arsenal.
