Feb 17: Bluegrass Duo Night - Three Big Acts

Nell Robinson & Jim Nunnally
More sunshine for San Francisco – but at night – with Nell Robinson’s big, bright, sunny charm and way down-to-earth bluegrass rhythms. Robinson (of Red Level, the Henriettas) is making a stop at Cyprian’s at the end of a much-acclaimed East Coast tour. Joining her is world-class picker and signer, Jim Nunally (David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, John Reischman and the Jaybirds) to make this duo one stand-out performance for the annual Bluegrass & Old-Time Fest.

Sam Misner & Megan Smith
With the gift of engaging story-telling through music and acting, Sam Misner & Megan Smith enthrall audiences with their unique vocal harmonies and lyrics that take flight. They’re a gem of a musical pairing, offering a fresh take on contemporary folk music. They earn applause and deep appreciation for the connection to roots music that’s been called “the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary.” Can anyone resist asking them to perform their award-winning Madeline (Paradise Cracked)? (West Coast Songwriters Association award, 2007).

Jeanie & Chuck Poling

Cyprian’s has some of the best, most talented neighbors, and Jeanie and Chuck Poling rank right at the top. They say it best: “our mission is first and foremost to give folks a show.” Hands-down and feet-stomping – they know just how to do that with bluegrass, honky-tonk, powerful vocals and fine guitar work. Jeanie and Chuck have been playing music together since 1982, and they were featured at Strictly Bluegrass in Golden Gate Park (before the “Hardly” was tacked on). They formed their Country Roundup band in 2001 to include whoever else they could add to their masterful musical mix.
