Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers: A Trolley Show

San Francisco band performs 'Till I'm Blue' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers’ folk music has perennial appeal—it’s not breaking any molds, but it’s timeless and completely appropriate for a rolling train ride. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the San Francisco band performs “Till I’m Blue.” The tradeoff between the male and female voices on the choruses creates an interesting dynamic that’s far more genuine than the pseudo-bohemian-folk stylings of bands like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. It’s a comforting jam, and sometimes the most affecting songs just have to roll over you.
