Description

After a time with the group Finn McCuill, a tour with Norman McCaig and his work with the 7:84 Theatre Company, the late Nick Keir joined THe McCalmans in 1982. He remained with the group for the next 30 years and toured all over the world as one of the best known and most successful Scottish Traditional acts.

Many of Nick's songs entered the repertoire of The McCalmans but at the same time Nick made many solo performances, including his sell-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe sell-put shows and still found time to record four solo albums.

In 2004 The McCalmans were inducted into the Scottish Traditional Hall of Fame and were presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The McCalmans retired in 2010 and Nick died of a serious illness in 2013 at far too young an age. Nick has been described as a modest and infinitely courteous man, a true poet and remarkable singer/songwriter.
