Johnny Nicol: My Music, My Life, My Story

Ayr, Burdekin Area

19 July 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$15 to AU$35

The inimitable singer/guitarist Johnny Nicol is known as a bit of a legend in the Australian jazz scene. Having been in the business now for over 50 years, he has worked with some of the greats both in Australia and overseas and has an unmistakable style that is all his own.

As a former member of the now legendary Maori Troubadours, Johnny has travelled all throughout Australia. It was during this time that he learned the craft of entertaining. After leaving the Troubadours to go solo, Johnny travelled overseas and further honed his craft performing in many prestigious venues in Las Vegas, Miami, the Bahamas and throughout Europe and the UK.

Once back in Australia, Johnny quickly found his place as a contemporary jazz artist. Critics acclaimed him “the finest jazz guitar stylist in Australia” and “our own George Benson in both vocal style and guitar technique”.

The night will also include guest appearances by a number of prominent Indigenous artists and public figures, including Professor Gracelyn Smallwood (Welcome to Country), Shireen Malamoo (Singer), Maggie Walsh (MC), Sean Choolburra (Comedian, Alfred Henaway (Foyer session during intermission), Aicey Zaro (Singer) and more.
