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.
