Blue Heron brings on bluegrass
April 24, 2012 · 3:59 PM
San Francisco-based roots singer Nell Robinson will bring her bluegrass All Star Band to Vashon for a show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28, at the Blue Heron.
Organizers of the concert pegged Robinson’s music as “Alabama soul music with a Bay Area twist,” and compared the singer to Emmylou Harris and political activist and singer Hazel Dickens.
Her band’s instrumentation includes mandolin, slide steel, guitar, banjo, fiddle and string bass. She has released two critically acclaimed albums, and her band has five separate albums to its credit.
