A student of tabla, darabouka and congas, Guy Nicolson studied with some of the UK’s finest Indian classical musicians. He has learnt to adapt his style to Scottish folk music, where he has been in demand with Salsa Celtica, Tony MacManus and others.
This restless spark drew him to Moishe’s Bagel, keen as always to combine his innate rhythmic brilliance with the chance to discover new forms and grooves.
When he is not playing percussion on every surface he can find, Guy is an expert woodworker and metalworker.
His responsive genius is the central plank of the group’s unique sound, whilst his take-no-prisoners personality lends the band a welcome edge.
