Thread Name: Nic Jones' first recordings
Subject: RE: Nic Jones' first recordings
It's not politics, its business . . For the whole sorry story go to DejaNews and search for "Dave Bulmer" and "Celtic Music" - though a full Mudcat search will probably turn up most of it . . .

There was also a fine article on Nic in a Folk Roots magazine not so long ago; I'd guess you could find a ref. on http://www.froots.demon.co.uk.

Yes, Nic was in Galliard. And there ARE quite a few available recording featuring his playing . . including albums on CD by June Tabor, Richard Thompson etc. (and Peter Bellamy's "The Transports"). If I had to recommend one it would be the original "Silly Sisters" album (June Tabor and Maddy Prior).

There are two of Nic's CDs available; "Penguin Eggs" on Topic and the retrospective "In search of Nic Jones" on his own Molly Music (IIRC) label.
