Wednesday 5th February 2014

Nick Dow has been singing traditional Folk Songs for over Forty years. He
has had a big influence on the Folk scene and most recently award winning
English Folk Musician Jim Moray has quoted Nick as an influence singing two
songs from his repertoire and including one {Seven Long Years} on his
latest album 'Skulk'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMrNLgdUeEw

Nick is an acknowledged expert on West Country Folk Songs and together with
his wife Mally has collected over 300 songs in Dorset, and also found
singers in Lancashire and Essex
He has also made recordings of Gypsy Singers some of which have been
included on Topic Records series 'The Voice of the People'
Nick Dow has returned to the Folk Scene after a long absence. He spent
several years building up his business of Sign writing and building and
restoring Gypsy Wagons.
Nick has lived an amazing life. From a rough childhood in South London, he
has lived on his wits since he left home at eighteen; travelling half way
round the world, living on the road with the Travelling Folk and learning
their songs, working as a TV and Film Extra, broadcaster, Narrow boat
painter, writer, Folklorist, Guitar Teacher and General Dealer.
Every song Nick sings has a story attached to it, and his gigs are as
informative as they are entertaining.
Nick and Mally now live happily in East Lancashire surrounded by Moorland
and Fells.

Pleasance Cabaret Bar at 20.00

£10, £8(c0nc), £6(members)

Nick isn't too well known in this neck of the woods but he is a very fine traditional performer and has, I'm sure, a lot of stories to tell.

Perhaps our good friends from South of The Border could kindly advise some of our "I only go to see people I've heard before" types that a journey to EFC on the 5th February will be well worth the effort?

:-)

Nick is a firm favourite at Burnley Folk Club, one of the very few we book every year.

With a great voice and a unique guitar style, Nick specialises in lesser- or un-known variations of songs - you've heard it before, but not like this...

Don't miss him, you'll have a great night.

Oh, and he's a really nice bloke too....

Nic is without doubt one of the finest exponents of traditional English songs, and one of the most tasteful guitarists you'll ever hear. A gig not to be missed.

What an enjoyable evening!

Great voice, very warm and homely stage presence, fantastic songs, stories, and tales from the English tradition.
Young folklorists and ethnologists could have learned much tonight...
