Lichfield Arts Presents Stevie Nimmo
Sunday, January 14th
The critically acclaimed blues musician Stevie Nimmo and his band will make their Lichfield Guildhall debut when they play there on Sunday 14th January.
Stevie Nimmo has been successfully recording and touring for the last two decades. Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland there was always music around as Stevie grew up. Stevie never had any guitar or singing lessons but throughout the family there were plenty of people who sang or played some kind of instrument to learn from. Early success came with his brother Alan in the Nimmo brothers, one of the leading bands on the British blues circuit.
In January 2010 Stevie recorded his first solo album The Wynds of Life at The Zone recording Studios outside Austin, Texas with an A-list of Austin’s finest musicians. Michael Ramos – Keys, George Reiff – Bass, Lloyd Maines – Steel Guitars, Pat Manske – Drums, and as a special guest guitarist David Lee Holt from Storyville.
Stevie’s second album “Sky Won’t Fall” was released on Manhaton Records on 4th March 2016 and has gone on to garner reviews including ‘Blues album of the Year’ In 2016 Stevie was also nominated at the British Blues Awards for ‘Best Male Vocalist’, ‘Best Guitarist’ and ‘Best Songwriter’ with The Nimmo Brothers nominated in ‘Best Blues Band’.
‘Stevie’s voice is at times gritty, other times emotional but all times perfection!’ Maverick Magazine.
A Lichfield Arts Spokesman said ‘Stevie Nimmo has been steadily building his reputation as a guitarist, singer and song-writer of the first order for some years now. His live shows build on the promise that ‘Sky won’t Fall’ delivered. This is a band that straddles the bombast of pure rock and the gentler strains of the blues. To see a guitarist of this standard playing within the grandeur of the guildhall will be unmissable opportunity for any fan of live music’.
The concert starts at 8.00pm on Sunday January 14th, with the doors opening at 7.15. There is a fully stocked bar, and our team of friendly, hard-working volunteers will only be happy to help you.
