Nick Dow

One of the best Folk Voices of his generation. Nick Dow has been singing and collecting Traditional Folk Songs for over forty years. His Guitar playing is sensitive and well thought out and his repertoire  contains many songs you will hear nowhere else. Nick has gleaned songs from the West Country, and been given songs by the Travelling people with whom he has lived and worked.

Nick Dow is trained in the dying art of Gypsy Wagon  Painting, and has worked  as a painter for a long list of Celebrities including Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones. Nick Dow's gigs are informative, and entertaining. He has a great sense of humour, and nobody goes home disappointed.


"The adjective “sturdy” is the overriding impression that first acquaintance with Nick’s singing affords: his is a well-rounded and full-toned baritone with a warm, supremely even-toned range and a grand confidence in the direct, unfussy delivery" –  David Kidman


"He's really a rather good and interesting singer"- Rod Stradling


"The quality of his singing left me reeling. He has a warm, mellow, lived-in voice that invites comparison with Cyril Tawney and Dave Burland." -Tony Hendry


"Nick’s a great singer with a fabulous voice and excellent style"- Gavin Atkin
