Nell Robinson – Loango

2021

“A stellar cast of local musicians, including members of the Jaybirds, joins Nell on the album. Laurie Lewis and Jim Nunally produced the songs on the album, and their careful blend of musicians and songs gives each song its own special setting. “In My Dear Old Southern Home” is an old Jimmie Rodgers song, and the image of an old home cabin is graced with a yodeling duet from Laurie and Nell. Nell and Keith Little blend their voices in “When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again,” and John Reischman’s mandolin, Nick Hornbuckle’s banjo and Greg Spatz’s fiddle just invite a nostalgic sing-a-long. Southern hospitality would dictate that any visitor would be treated to the best in the house, and Nell’s songs have a love of life and a joy of discovery that will make you pull up a rocker and rest a spell”.
