Posted on: Tuesday, Nov 2, 2010
There will be fireworks at Thornton Little Theatre on November 5th when Scotlands top blues rock band The Nimmo Brothers return to the area
Alan and Stevie Nimmo are two of the most exciting, modern blues guitarists on the European circuit. Drawing their influences from the blues boom of the 1960s, they learned their trade by listening to such greats as Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
The Nimmo Brothers emerged as a band from the Blackwater Blues band in the late 1990s, with a first album (Moving On) that yielded a number of strong tracks – many of which are still requested by fans today. Signed by Armadillo Music following the Moving On album, the brothers combine a passion for live performance and showmanship with a desire to write good songs. “Coming Your Way”, the first release on their new label, catapulted them to the forefront of the European blues scene, with top billing at many of the European festivals and support slots for many of the blues greats.
They have since gone on to highlight the best in powerhouse British rock and blues. Their material is rooted in the traditions of the British blues boom of the 1960s but includes enough rock elements to keep most blues/rock fans happy. The band play with power, attitude and passion and will be featuring material from their most recent CD ‘Picking Up The Pieces’. A Glaswegian attitude plus the incredible energy they inject into every performance has gained the Nimmo Brothers an enviable reputation.
The Nimmo Brothers are playing at Thornton Little Theatre on Friday Nov 5th. Doors open 8.00pm & they will be on stage about 9.00pm.
Tickets are £10 in advance or £12 on the door and can be booked by phoning The Marine Hall box office on 01253 887693 between 11am & 4pm.
