Duo night: Nell Robinson & Jim Nunnally, Misner & Smith, Jeanie & Chuck Polling
Fri. Feb. 17, 7:30pm -Duo night with
Nell Robinson & Jim Nunnally, Misner & Smith, Jeanie & Chuck Poling
Join three diverse duos for some very fine singing, sweet harmonies, and hot pickin'.
Just back from a triumphant tour back East, finishing at the Kennedy Center in DC, Nell Robinson (Red Level, the Henriettas) has taken the local bluegrass scene by storm with her distinctive vocals and sunny stage charisma. Nell teams up this evening with world-class picker and singer, Jim Nunally (David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, John Reischman and the Jaybirds) to put a new face on some old-time music.
Sam Misner and Megan Smith began their musical collaboration after working together as actors on a production of Woody Guthrie's American Song. Balancing their careers as actors and musicians, the two have found the art of storytelling to be one of the common threads running through both forms. Crafting original songs rich in meaning and texture, the duo's sound is centered around unique vocal harmonies and evocative lyrics, and in 2007, their song "Madeline (Paradise Cracked)" won the West Coast Songwriters Association's Song of the Year competition.
Jeanie & Chuck Poling play bluegrass, honky-tonk, and more. Featuring Jeanie's beautiful and powerful vocals and Chuck's fine guitar work and inexhaustible supply of stage patter, this duo's mission is first and foremost to give folks a show. They've been entertaining Bay Area audiences for over a decade as a duo and with their band Jeanie and Chuck's Country Roundup.$16adv/$18door
