Ouroboros >>> at The Druid Inn – Friday 20th May 9.00pm

featuring Maggie Nicols (voice, keyboard), Pete Stacey (reeds, flute) and Sid Thomas (keyboard, reeds).


Maggie Nicols has collaborated regularly over the years with Swiss pianist Irene Schweizer and French bassist Joelle Leandre, including tours and three recordings as the trio Les Diaboliques. Her collaboration with Ken Hyder also continues; the duo incorporate elements of the traditional tunes of their shared Scottish background into jazz improvisations in their most recent project, Hoots and Roots Duo. Other continuing projects for Nicols include a duo with pianist Pete Nu, a singing duo with her daughter Aura Marina, a trio with avant-gardists Caroline Kraabel and Charlotte Hug, a duo with pianist Steve Lodder (“The Maggie Nicols Songbook”), and Light and Shade, a project with lighting designer Sue Neal. She has also been involved with many other groups, such as the a capella group Inspiration (former Brixton Youth), Trevor Watts’ Moire Music, Very Varied, The Lewis Riley Quartet, No Rules OK, Pulse, Gustt, and Al Dente.

Nicols has performed internationally for several decades, including the Zürich and the Frankfurt “Canaille” festivals, the Victoriaville Festival. She also gave solo performances at the Moers Music Festival, the Cologne Triennale, and a number of other creative and improvised music festivals. She has worked with a great many improvisers from all over the world, including drummer Günter “Baby” Sommer, British soprano saxophonist Lol Coxhill, Dutch trombonist and violinist Annemarie Roelofs, the Australian Relative Band (with Jim Denley), tuba player Pinguin Moschner, the Loverly Band, Cats Cradle, and Sean Bergin’s Song Mob (with Han Bennink and Tristan Honsinger).
