Duet makes debut at Spirit Broadband Amphitheater Sept. 12

CROSSVILLE — A harmony driven duet, Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally will appear in Tennessee for the first time this September with a debut concert Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Spirit Broadband Amphitheater in downtown Crossville.

Singer-Songwriter Nell Robinson first began singing at the age of 50, living a dream since she was a child. The initial response has been nothing short of amazing.

Since this late beginning, she has released two critically acclaimed CD's, "Loango" and "On the Brooklyn Road." She recently signed a contract with Emmy-Award winning PBS producer Peter Berkow to be a featured artist in a new 13-part PBS music series airing in 2013.

Robinson along with her duo partner, Jim Nunally, will be appearing Sept. 12 at the Spirit Broadband Amphitheater. The concert will be a  benefit for Downtown Crossville, Inc. (DCI) devoted to the revitalization of the historic downtown Crossville area. All proceeds from “pass the bucket” will be donated to this effort. 

Within the past year of forming their duo, Robinson and Nunally have performed at the Kennedy Center, Kate Wolf Festival and the iconic Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. They also have an upcoming appearance at the Strawberry Music Festival Sept. 1. Nunally is a world-class guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, and has toured extensively with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and John Reischman and The Jaybirds. He is the recipient of two Grammy award certificates and two IBMA awards. He is also a two time Western Open Master-picking Champion and Guitar Champion. His most recent CD, Gloria’s Waltz, showcases his distinctive pickin' and singing.

Robinson and Nunally's concert will include well-loved songs from her debut and sophomore CD's “Loango” and “On the Brooklyn Road” as well as songs from their soon-to-be-released album “House & Garden.” The duo offers great humor, a sublime vocal harmony blend, and world-class guitar-pickin’.This harmony-driven duo's musical style is reminiscent of classic country duets like George Jones and Tammy Wynette as well as singing siblings like the Louvin and Stanley Brothers. Think Del McCroury meets Iris DeMent.

In case of inclement weather, the Palace Theatre will be utilized. Admission is free. The concert is sponsored by Don Hinch and Associates.
