KEN NICOL will now be performing as Gareth Dunlop has been called away to Hollywood, CA! Ken Nicol makes his debut performance for JonnoPromotions on Sunday 28th September, 2014, at Jabberwocky. Ken Nicol is a guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer from Preston, in England. His music covers the spectrum from blues to rock, and effortlessly takes in folk, jazz, ragtime, ballads and more along the way. Ralph McTell - “Ken Nicol is a consummate musician. A guitarist of broad scope, a sensitive singer and an intelligent writer of songs with stirring melodies. A musical paragon.” Maddy Prior - “It’s difficult for me to imagine a more talented all rounder than Ken; both as singer and guitarist.” Ashley Hutchings - “Prodigiously talented.” Ken was a member of the legendary Albion Band from 1997 until September 2001 when he left in order to spend more time on other projects. In December 2002, he successfully joined forces with Steeleye Span, working with the band for eight years, most recently on their 2009 40th Anniversary Tour, visiting the USA and Australia. During his time with Steeleye he recorded four albums with the band: ‘They Called Her Babylon’, ‘Winter’, ‘Bloody Men’ and ‘Cogs, Wheels and Lovers’. Ken left the band in 2010. As well as making and producing music, Ken has also worked with guitar makers Fylde guitars to develop the Ken Nicol Signature guitar. Beautifully constructed from cedar and rosewood, its incredible sound led to Acoustic Magazine giving this guitar an unprecedented 99% rating. When he’s not touring or writing, he can be found producing projects of his own and other artists at his MVS Studios in Preston.
