sorry about that. it seems to work for me.

Ken Nicol is a Lancashire lad. he lives in Preston. He used to play in Steeleye Span.

but he is an astonishing guitarist - one of a handful who had made me rethink my approach to guitar playing. I owe him big time.

he gave a seminar, one year at Fylde Folk Festival and I just realised what a narrow minded git I was. He was just so open minded and intelligent.

Ludicrously underused by the music business - a great talent and a great teacher

Not only Steeleye Span but also The Albion Band, an excellent performer indeed, and of course there is a new Albion Band in the form of Nancy Kerr & Sweet Visitor!

Mike Harding always maintained that the Irwell delta - home of Blind Lemon Clegg and Sleepy John Arkwright - was the true source of the blues.
