Guest: NICK DOW
Traditional folksong par excellence. One of the best folk voices of his generation, NICK DOW has been performing and song-collecting for over forty years, gleaning material from the West Country, and being given songs by the Travelling people, with whom he has lived and worked. His guitar-playing is sensitive and well thought-out and his repertoire contains many songs you will hear nowhere else. “A mellow, lived-in voice… [like] … Cyril Tawney and Dave Burland” (Tony Hendry), “sturdy, well-rounded and full-toned” … “direct, unfussy delivery” (David Kidman), “excellent style” (Gavin Atkin), are just some of the nice things said and written about him by those in the know.
Most of the usual Doghouse Guest arrangements applied: c.40 mins. of singaround, followed by support acts (JOHN KNOWLER provided the other, including the very droll The Colo-Rectal Surgeon, impeccably delivered), plus two 45-mins. spots from Nick.
