The Nimmo Brothers, from Glasgow, Scotland have proved themselves to be one of the most respected exponents of modern blues the UK has seen since the blues boom of the 1960’s.
After almost 17 years of working together, and with Alan Nimmo currently enjoying successful huge success with King King, one perhaps wouldn’t be wrong in surmising that the best days of The Nimmo Brothers as a band were behind them.
The truth is that the brothers from Glasgow are very much back in business! Well, for this one reunion tour at least!
Once again The Nimmo Brothers are out to show the world that the term “taking it easy” simply doesn’t exist in the vocabulary of one of Scotland’s finest exports since the great Frankie Miller and a couple of slightly more famous brothers named Young!
Anyone who has ever seen the brothers perform live will surely testify; when is it ever not exciting when these two musicians from Glasgow take to the stage in their own inimitable all or nothing fashion?
The Nimmo Brothers are quite simply and without doubt the benchmark in modern UK blues - disappointment is most definitely not an option!
