Description

A synthesis of acoustic and electric music that covers many influences and styles, but is nevertheless rooted in the genre of folk and folk-rock. The guitarist, singer-songwriter and composer says: "The album is a cross section of stories drawn from history, both my own history and world history." Songs on the album will include a re-working of Demon Of The Well, a song Ken wrote when he was a member of Steeleye Span, and which was recorded on the band's 2006 album Bloody Men. It's a song inspired by a folklore tale of a curse, a murder and a ghost from Waddow Hall near Clitheroe. Another song, inspired by Ken's own family history, is Ten Pound Poms, a story of mass emigration. "The two songs I wrote for Steeleye Span are historic stories, and "Ten Pound Poms" is inspired by the personal history of my family. Ken has made more than 50 albums as a member of bands, duos and other projects. His music encompasses folk, rock, blues, jazz, and even a touch of comedy, and features his trademark acoustic and electric guitar work. Ken Nicol is one of Britain's most highly-regarded acoustic guitarists.
