Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers Cover The Kinks For New ‘Van Session’


Tonight, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers complete their first European Tour with a visit to Manchester, England. The band took the opportunity of the drive between last night’s gig in London and this evening’s stop in Manchester to film the latest Van Session. For those unfamiliar with the video series, Nicki and her band mates pass the time in between gigs by playing cover songs in their van, recording them with an iPhone and posting them online for fun.

Van Session #30 features a cover of The Kinks’ “Picture Book.” The Ray Davies-penned song is the third track from The Kinks’ iconic 1968 album The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society. Nicki provides lead vocals while Dave Mulligan and Steve Adams add backing vocals. Take a look:

Bluhm kicks off a run with The Infamous Stringdusters later this month before the Gramblers join the tour in March.
