“It’s infectious high energy folk”
– Iain Hazlewood, Spiral Earth
“Things seem to have been really happening for Nimming Ned since we last caught up with them. For a start they’ve doubled in size, now a four piece and signed to Nottingham avent garde folk indie, Folkwit and it’s from there that they released full blown album “Summon The Crows”. The fuller sound makes the band more accessible, gives more depth to the hobo folk blues, which bizarrely and mainly through Chris Woods vocal styly and Jim Walker’s fiddle seems to take on an almost Nivarnaesque quality. “Summon The Crows” atmosphere, it’s good honest fun and great value.”
-Neil King, FATEA
“Top band, one of the highlights of the Festival”
– The Big Session Organisers

– Candlelit Acoustic
“The Neds were great…really bright and funny.”

– Tim Carroll, Folkwords
About Nimming Ned:
Hailing from the lesser know county of Nedlingshire in the heart of Olde England, Nimming Ned simply do what they know best – playing rowdy folk and telling their colourful tales in a highly infectious and distinctive style. Rising folk festival favourites, the band have now committed 8 of their songs to their debut album, Summon The Crows.
Nimming Ned’s appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe 2 years ago led them to be described as the most engaging, anarchic folk act of the festival.
They are expected to make a significant impact on the 2012 festival circuit with several bookings already confirmed. The band are currently in the process of putting together a national Spring tour to support the release of Summon the Crows.
