Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally with Soldier Stories Band
Join Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally with special guests the Soldier Stories band for a very special evening of new and traditional music. This show is a sneak preview for an upcoming PBS music series.

Just returned from a standing room only crowd at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, D.C.), and their debut at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Nell & Jim will open the show with their sweet harmonies, virtuoso guitar, and new and traditional music described as "startlingly post-millennial; at the intersection of Americana, bluegrass, folk and country".

Nell Robinson has a brand-new harmony-driven duo with award winning guitarist Jim Nunally, reminiscent of classic country duets like George Jones and Tammy Wynette as well as singing siblings like the Louvin and Stanley Brothers. Think Del McCoury meets Iris Dement.

Alongside their own original material, Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally cover music ranging from Bill Monroe to Nine Inch Nails. Nell's debut CD, Nell Robinson in Loango, made national bluegrass and Americana charts throughout the country and she was quickly snapped up by Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and Strawberry Music Festival. Jim Nunally is a world-class guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, and has toured extensively with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and John Reischman. He is the recipient of two Grammy Award certificates and two IBMA awards. He is also a two time Western Open Masterpicking Champion and Guitar Champion

They will be joined in the second half by Mike Phelan (Marley's Ghost) and Chuck Ervin (Euphonia) for music, stories and letters from their acclaimed show "Soldier Stories"; a musical conversation about war and service from the Revolutionary War  to the present.. seeking to build community and honor vets while raising awareness of veteran healthcare issues and the human costs of war.

"Soldier Stories held the audience spell-bound" -Steve Baker, Freight & Salvage.

Last year's show at OCA was a hit; we are pleased to have these virtuoso musicians back for a special Memorial Day weekend event.
