Nee Ningy Band Album Release Show – Live at the Bullpen @ The Bullpen
Mar 2 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

A band with a sound unlike any other, Nee Ningy presents an uncommon blend of American and European traditional tunes from blues, southern old time, and Cajun to Swedish walking music, Scottish reels, and the French bourrée.
Celebrating the release of their 2017 album “The Parlour Sessions.”

The Nee Ningys were big on the festival scene in the late 70’s and 80’s. With seemingly every sound and instrument on earth at their disposal (except guitar – no guitars!), they get called world music, corralling everything from Cajun to Appalachian music, Tex-Mex, and French and English folk songs into one joyful sound. But maybe we can just call them funk. It’s all just funky, dirty, down-to-earth, shout-it-out music, reaching into the gut of every culture and genre for that thing that makes you feel alive.
