Bill & Jilian Nershi


Saturday, April 8th @7pm

Guitarist and co-founder of The String Cheese Incident, Bill Nershi, and wife Jilian Nershi, join together as a duo of harmonies and driving acoustic guitar, immediately drawing in the listener. An inspired journey through various styles and influences, a throwback to the roots of American music, the Nershis have a relaxed way of connecting with the audience through the stories in their songs. Constantly finding ways to make the music sound complete as a duo, unique arrangements and a deep catalogue of original songs highlight the couple’s dedication to their craft.

The last time Bill and Jilian Nershi played at Big Basin Vineyards it was in owner Bradley Brown’s house on Valentines Day, just before the pandemic began, and not long before the CZU Lightening Complex wildfire ravaged much of the property and destroyed the home. This concert was professionally recorded and released as their first album titled “PartNERSHIp“. You can find it on most of the streaming services. This upcoming concert is meant to bring us full circle and back to this beautiful place so we can celebrate regrowth and rebuilding after the devastation of the fires.
