Nick was born in 1952
and began to play guitar at 13 years of
age, and was heavily into The Beatles,
as was virtually everyone else. He saw
live concerts by Fleetwood Mac, Chicken
Shack, Jethro Tull, Family, Blind Faith,
Gino Washington, The Incredible String
Band, John Hiseman's Coliseum and King
Crimson. He was introduced to the folk
blues guitar playing of Bert Jansch
& John Renbourne, together with
Ralph McTell, whose style was
technically more attainable.
Ever since the 60's his first preference has been for acoustic guitar and contemporary folk/roots music from Britain and America, and he has a giant catalogue of cover songs in this genre. This results in a wide and diverse repertoire played with deceptive ease by a highly accomplished guitarist.
