Review – Nick Dow – 29 July 2020

Nick Dow is blessed with one of the best Folk voices I’ve ever heard, and over the 40 years that he has been singing he just seems to get better and better! Last night at our Virtual House Concert he was on top form and gave us a wonderful performance from his home; many of the songs I haven’t heard anywhere else. They were beautifully sung, his guitar accompaniments effortless and the introductions were informative and entertaining.

Nick has just published a book ‘Southern Songster, of English Folk songs from the Hammond & Gardiner manuscripts, which is now available to order, price £15. He also has a recent CD available, ‘In a Garden Grove‘.

Once again, Ryburn Folk Clib Residents Tim Edwards and Sue Burgess gave us a couple of songs each at the start. Thank you both.
