Nigel Barker Music 8PM
Nigel Barker has just released his first stunning solo album ‘LOVE DEATH AND EVERYTHING INBETWEEN’. The album, his fourth, is a slightly less Americana based, addition to his three albums with Cowboy Hat and That Fuzzbox Voodoo.
He is also touring the UK. Nigel’s ‘Band In A Box Solo Tour’ starts December 7th 2018 in the UK. The show, musically a mix of fired up Blues Rock, Alt.Country, Pre Rock and Post Rock is a visually impressive presentation as he plays solo in front of six video screens, The show is especially designed to work well in small venues.
Nigel is an international award winning filmmaker as well as a musician. ‘I decided to merge the two skills into 90 minutes of hopefully enthralling entertainment. There were four months of preparation and I think it works well…26 videos, 90 minutes of great music.’
Interestingly Nigel has a badly damaged left hand as the result of car accident when he was twenty three. He didn’t play for nearly thirty years. He puts his recovery down to a heavy clutch on his Harley Davidson motorcycle, negotiating fifty sets of traffic lights per day. He plays with three fingers. ‘I get by’, he says. ‘I’m just grateful to be able to pick up a guitar and make a pleasing noise.’
