Nic Meier (guitar)

An evening inspired by the music of American jazz guitarist Pat Metheny.

Nicolas Meier – acoustic and steel string acoustic guitar.
Alex Hutton – piano and keyboards
Bass - Tom Mason
Eric Ford – Drums

UK-based guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the world's most original and uniquely talented guitarists.

Drawing from a love of Turkish, Eastern and Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango and other genres, all mixed with jazz , Meier's versatility and musical fluency extends well beyond that.

Nic’s considerable talents drew the attention of rock guitar legend, Jeff Beck, who made Nicolas a mainstay in The Jeff Beck Group carrying him on two world tours during the course of the last several years.

Meier originally hails from Switzerland; born in 1973, to parents who are great lovers of the arts. Never short on ambition, Meier founded his own record label, MGP Records, in 2009. To date, he's produced twelve albums: as a solo artist; in various group formats (The Nicolas Meier Group; Nicolas Meier Trio; Eclectica!; Nicolas Meier World Group); with his heavy metal band, Seven7, and; in a duo format, with long-time partner, fellow guitarist and collaborator, the fabulous UK master, Pete Oxley. (Their 2015 release, "Chasing Tales," was a masterful, benchmark album, in the dual-guitar format.)

Meier’s sound is rooted in his love of playing jazz on acoustic guitar, especially his Godin nylon-string guitar. It’s a sound that lends itself especially well to flamenco and middle-eastern music.

These influences, and more, are brilliantly fused in his unique multi-lingual style. He also plays fretless acoustic guitar, the Saz (a traditional Turkish stringed instrument), electric guitar, steel-string acoustic guitar, glissentar (an 11-stringed fretless insturment) and a baglama. By 2022 a new World Group studio album called "Magnificent" came out. A 3 CD package including "Live" and "Stories" to promote this release, lots of UK concerts and a European tour of 11 dates opening for rock guitar legend Steve Vai.

This show will be a nod towards the influence of Pat Metheny and will be a colourful blend of jazz; rock and European folk influenced Jazz.

The Carrivick Sisters

The Carrivick Sisters are one of the UK's top young bluegrass and folk acts.

Twins Laura and Charlotte perform their original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo. Their busy touring schedule is rapidly building them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight sibling vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in South Devon, an area rich in folk lore and legends, much of their original material is inspired by their local surroundings and history.

The Carrivick Sisters first started performing as a duo in 2006, originally as buskers before turning professional when they left school in 2007. In 2007 they won the South West Busker’s and Street Entertainer’s Competition, gaining themselves their first spot at Glastonbury Festival. In 2008 Laura achieved 2nd place at the RockyGrass Fiddle Contest in America. The Carrivick Sisters were finalists in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young FolkAwards 2010 and were named Band|Duo of the Year in the 2011 FATEA Awards. Most recently Charlotte won first place in both Old-time banjo and fiddle at FOAOTMAD's festival in Gainsborough 2012.
