Ken Nicol is an exceptional musician. As a guitarist, he is one of the most skilled and exciting players anywhere today; as a singer he is capable of evoking wide range of emotions in his audience; and as a songwriter he demonstrates these abilities in his clever and well-crafted material.
His music covers the spectrum from blues to rock, effortlessly taking in folk, jazz, ragtime, ballads and more along the way.
A Waltz With Alice – press play
In 1997 Ken joined The Albion Band as lead guitarist and singer, writing much of the band’s material himself and co-writing with Ashley Hutchings. They produced four albums in this time: “Happy Accident”, Before Us Stands Yesterday”, “The Christmas Album” and “Road Movies” on the Topic record label.
2002, he successfully joined forces with the legendary folk-rockers Steeleye Span on their UK ‘Reunion Tour’, and due to its great success, his collaboration with the band continued for a further seven years.
2009 proved to be an extremely busy time with Steeleye and deciding to take full advantage of his trip ‘down under’ with Steeleye, Ken immediately followed the Australian leg with a string of solo performances beginning in Perth, and continuing across the North and South islands of New Zealand during October and November.
Ken continues to write, record and tour as a solo artist and we are lucky to have a chance to hear him on this, his latest trip ‘down under’
Update – We have added a support act
Wendy Ealey and Moira Tyers – The Dixie Chooks will be joining us on the night
Wendy Ealey and Moira Tyers have their tuneful fingers in many musical pies.
They are frequently heard and seen at music venues (such as The Fox Hotel, Clifton Hill Hotel, The Chandelier Room) festivals (Yackandandah, Wintermoon, Tamar Valley, Kangaroo Valley, Newstead, Maldon, Fleurieu), community and corporate events entertaining audiences as they celebrate their liberation from high heels and contraception. They are equally at ease paying tongue in cheek homage to much loved ‘lurve’ ballads as they are giving songs with a bit of social bite a good airing.
This is going to be a good night,
and here is some more Ken to finish off with…
