Ken McNicol Live in Concert at South Coast Folk Club

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, 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.
“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

“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

“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
