Absolutley extraordinary singer and guitarist and I think the programme did him justice in terms of samples from his recordings and the things that people said about him. Also a great sense of what might have been?

A clear reminder of how powerful traditional music can be and how different it is to other no less imortant forms of music.

We probably wont here Nick live again but you can do what Nick did last year in Otley and hear The Duncan McFarlane Band. Duncan will be the first to say he is not Nick but for a taste of really thrilling traditional and written music the DMBs have more than a little of the power, complexity and sheer excitement of Nick.
