South Coast Folk Club presents Ken Nicol (UK) - Concert starts at 8pm, doors open at 7pm. Fully seated - cabaret style. Parking on site. Licensed bar - byo supper/nibblies.

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, and effortlessly takes in folk, jazz, ragtime, ballads and more along the way.
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, v...isiting 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.
“Formidable and painstakingly acquired skills on both acoustic and electric guitars, a very high class player indeed. Flexible too. He seems comfortable with whatever style is tossed at him.” - Martin Carthy

“I first met Ken when we collaborated on an Ashley Hutchings song on his last album. I was amazed at Ken’s beautiful ragtime guitar style. He has such a great way of delivering a story and gently laying down the punch line. Humour, great guitar skill and the right drop of humility, and a passion for right, proper, good music.” - 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
