Blues at its very best!
Stevie Nimmo Trio
+ support Luke Doherty Band
As one half of Scotland’s highly respected ‘Nimmo Brothers’, Stevie Nimmo has been a well known and respected figure throughout the blues and roots world for over 2 decades.
Now, having toured extensively with the critically acclaimed blues rock outfit over the last few years, as well as taking to the road in a stripped back, acoustic format to promote his debut solo project ‘The Wynds of Life’, Stevie is now setting out on a new adventure in a full-on, electric, no-holds-barred trio format.
Stevie says that, although the acoustic project is extremely satisfying and allows him to showcase his voice and song writing talents in the perfect environment, sometimes “…you just want to break out the Les Paul, crank up the old orange amp and make some noise!”
Which is exactly what he plans to do.
Stevie’s new cd ‘Sky Won’t Fall’ will be released worldwide on the 4th march on the Manhaton Records label and it is already being touted as a potential album of the year by those in the media fortunate enough to have received an advance copy.
He is enjoying making music now as much as at any point throughout his 20 years in the business and is fully relishing the prospect of touring and performing the new songs to his ever growing army of admirers.
Don’t miss this chance to catch an artist at the top of his game doing what he does best – standing on stage playing his own music in his own passionate, inimitable fashion.
You will not be disappointed!

Luke is never happier than when he is playing Blues. It all started when he was 7 years old and he found an old music VHS in a cupboard featuring several Blues players. He was enthralled with the playing of Eric Clapton and B.B King, both of which he was extremely honoured to meet a few years later. Over time he also met the great Peter Green, Jeff Healey and Andy Fairweather-Low, and John Mayell which enlightened his passion for Blues even more.
Luke has been truly blessed to share the stage with many fine Blues rock artists including, Ansley Lister, Danny Bryant, Virgil and the Accelerators, Connie Lush, Mike Estes of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Skinny Molly, As well as the Legendary Buddy Whittington, who told the crowd when Luke was on stage with him “This is how the Blues should be played”.

With such enthusiasm from the public about the album it has propelled them to go back into the studio to start on another long awaited second all original
