Don Nicholson
Folk / Rock

 Don Nicolson is an original singer/songwriter based in Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland. Originally from Dundee, Don grew up in a large, musical family and has been penning songs from a very early age. His lyrics are straight from the heart and he draws on his life experiences for the content. His complex guitar picking and looping techniques make the lyrics come to life. Don won Songwriter Of The Year at the Perthshire Amber Festival 2006 where he shared the stage with Dougie Maclean and his prize was to record in Dougies own studio. He has also played with Maggie Riley, supported Journey South and Coast.
In 2008 he was runner up on the BBC3 TV You Tube show, Upstaged.
He recently travelled to Germany to play at the Schotten Radio Summer Party where he gained many new fans and positive press. In 2009 he released his debut album, The Sandpiper Chronicles, produced by Nick Green. The album was well received and sold out. He is now working on the second album but in the meantime has released an acoustic EP, Daddy Youre A Giant, which was successfully launched at the German Schotten Radio event. He receives regular airplay both at home and abroad and has a growing fan base. His professional stage prescence and attitiude adds to his musical and writing talents to give a package which appeals to young and old alike and a wide variety of genres. Don is a rare talent worth checking out. All who do are not disappointed...
