Nimmo Brothers announce hiatus
They'll concentrate on individual projects following 20th anniversary tour
The Nimmo Brothers have announced they’ll take a break after their 20th anniversary tour, while they concentrate on their individual projects.
Alan will focus on King King, who have a busy year after released third album Reaching For The Light. Stevie will turn to solo work including acoustic shows, and a tour with his electric trio.
Older brother Stevie, who fought cancer in 2009, recently told National Blues Review: “After my illness I wanted to do something different, more acoustic. This ended up as The Wynds Of Life album, recorded in Austin, Texas.”
“I didn't want to go out with a bass, drums and keys setup – that would really just be King King. But I really enjoy the trio format."
The Nimmo Brothers play six show towards the end of the year:
Sep 18: Southampton Talking Heads
Sep 24: Sheffield Greystones
Oct 01: Edinburgh Voodoo Rooms
Oct 03: Glasgow Oran Mor
Oct 08: Kendal Bootleggers Bar
Oct 10: Corby Raven Hotel
Oct 17: Derby Flowerpot
