Following decades of success in their respective careers, and exciting recent appearances at the Vancouver Folk Festival, Fresh Grass Festival, La Roche Bluegrass Festival (France), Northern California musicians Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally are releasing a new album of original material on February 15, 2019, Steel. The music transports you back to a time when artists freely spoke of their thoughts and beliefs. In a sense, Steel - produced and engineered by John Cuniberti (Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar) - continues the time-honored tradition of musical activism that made such acts as Janis Ian or Peter, Paul and Mary so unforgettable. Whether it be the title cut (an ode to Jim Nunally?s former life as a welder) or ?Speed Limit,? a song about the fact that life doesn?t have to end at 40, the Nell & Jim Band own their story by continuing to release original and thought-provoking music.

Third Thursday of Every Month at 6pm

Generally, we start with reviewing tunes slowly, learning a new tune and ending with a slow session. The slow session gives everyone the practice of leading a known tune and having everyone join in and play by ear. Amazingly, there are always a couple of folks who know a tune or two even at the first gathering.
