A PERFORMER who has spent the past 20 years recording and touring his own style of blues rock is coming to St Helens.

The Stevie Nimmo Trio comes to The Citadel on Saturday, April 14, with doors opening at 7.30pm.

Stevie, who was born and raised in Glasgow, hails from a music background.

In January 2010 he recorded his first solo album The Wynds of Life with an A-list of Texas’finest musicians Michael Ramos George Reiff , Lloyd Maines , Pat Manske , andas a special guest guitarist David Lee Holt from Storyville. 

Fleshed out with pedal steel, banjo, accordion, B3and Wurlitzer, amongst other instruments, The Wynds of Life falls just as easily under the Americana banner with its roots in country and gospel influences as it does in Stevie’s more familiar blues setting.

Stevie’s second album was released on Manhaton Records in March 2016 and has gone on to garner reviews including ‘Blues album of the Year’. In the same year,he was nominated at the British Blues Awards for ‘Best Male Vocalist’, ‘Best Guitarist’ and ‘Best Songwriter’ with The Nimmo Brothers nominated in ‘Best Blues Band’

Unfortunately, Stevie who broke his arm in a cycling accident last year, will needs some back during his recuperation and will be accompanied on stage by close friend Dave Devlin who will join the band for this tour. While Stevie will still be singing the songs!
