Some of the best players working in the genre over the last four decades, if you love roots music like it should be played, you’ll love what Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band do” – Vents Magazine

Nell & Jim Band bring all of your favorite elements of authentic music together, creating a genre-busting sound that combines country, jazz, folk and bluegrass music. New album Baby Let’s Take the Long Way was released in April 2017 on Whippoorwill Arts and features a seamless blend of original material and classic country gems. True roots music often includes a back story and theirs is a rich one, even bringing some of their own favorite book titles to song.

The “beloved Bay Area bluegrass stars” (San Jose Mercury News) have been featured in Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the PBS series Music Gone Public, Kate Wolf Music Festival and Strawberry Music Festival. In 2017 the band performed at Vancouver Folk Festival and FreshGrass.

Nell Robinson has been described as one of the freshest voices in roots music. Jim Nunally is a San Francisco Bay Area-native, a musician, composer, record producer, and teacher. Jim joins master American guitarists Doc Watson and Tony Rice as one of the finest interpreters and performers of bluegrass and traditional music. Jim Kerwin is considered simply one of the best string bass players in the country. Playing with David Grisman for over 30 years, he is featured on all of Grisman’s Jerry Garcia recordings. Jon Arkin is a versatile, gifted percussionist who is known for his performances & recorded work in a wide variety of musical contexts. In He has performed with jazz greats such as Lee Konitz, Gene Perla, and Ira Sullivan. This is truly an all-star band!
