Nick Dow has been singing traditional folk songs for over 40 years, and has proved a big influence on the Folk scene.


Nick has lived an amazing life. From a rough childhood in South London, he has lived on his wits since he left home at eighteen: travelling half way round the world; living on the road with the Travelling Folk and learning their songs; working as a TV and film extra, broadcaster, narrowboat painter, writer, folklorist, guitar teacher and general dealer.


An acknowledged expert on West Country Folk Songs, Nick, together with his wife Mally, has collected over 300 songs in Dorset. Every song Nick sings has a story attached to it, and his gigs are as informative as they are entertaining.
