Nicky comes from rural Northumberland and found the route to Irish and Scottish traditional music through his home county’s rich musical heritage. Predominantly a guitarist, he was engrossed at an early age through projects like Folkworks at the Sage, Gateshead, performing and experimenting with a wide range of musical outfits and bands. With a passion for music and travel he has developed an interest in folk music from many of the countries he has visited and has experimented with influences from Europe, India and North Africa. After several years of travelling and gigging in England and Europe, Nicky moved to the Isle of Uist to further develop his interest in traditional music and began performing with Eabhal.
