"Nick Pynn is an incredible musician and early pioneer of live looping before you could buy a 'looper'. One of the best fiddle players out there with a unique take on acoustic guitar that (his teaching) will take you right out of a rutt no doubts."
Nick Benjamin- luthier
“Nick Pynn could raise the dead with his fiddle playing”
"When I started doing music on stage, I used Nick originally, and he really gave me the confidence to work out how to do things."
