A Fiddle Album
On this release Nick plays a collection of fiddle tunes from England, Ireland, Scotland, North America, France, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and Bulgaria.
It is available from all online stores as a download.
A limited edition CD is available from the Online Store on this website.
“Less experimental than much of his solo work, Nick sets aside the avant folk for an entirely more traditional sound. Taking in fiddle tunes from much of Europe, Turkey and North America this is a versatile selection of the finest folk sounds”
The Musician Autumn 2020
"This was originally going to be the flip side of the ‘Buffalo Orbison’ album. I’d just written ‘In Adelaide’ when on the flip side of the world and had a flash of the concept of pairing up two albums as a complementary package. I later decided I’d wait for this to be a finished full length album, without the self imposed pressure of including tracks I would normally let go for ‘library’ use, so as to maintain its vision. I’ve finally decided to release it as a mini-album"
In the US: 'Dr One' from the Buffalo Orbison album is to be broadcast with Nick's DIY archive based video on 'Here Comes Everybody' on cable TV in Los Angeles CA, Pasadena CA, San Francisco CA, Portland OR, North Liberty IA, Waukegan IL & Ithaca NY in 2020. 'Here Comes Everybody' is the brainchild of producer, curator and filmmaker, Will Erokan and is a monthly show featuring subversive and experimental films.
'Troop Zero' is now out on Amazon Prime. It features a soundtrack by Rob Lord with Nick playing many of the instrumental parts.
