Matt Nicholls is something of a newcomer to the world of folk music. Hailing from Wrexham, North Wales, he has been playing acoustic guitar and singing since the age of eleven and for many years has fronted the indie rock band Camera.

Having grown up playing the local folk and open mic clubs, Matt is now finally beginning work on a folk record due for release later in the year.

His live set is a mixture of traditional folk and blues songs which sit comfortably next to his original material. His influences are varied, but his latest material is reminiscent of the music of the 60's folk revival.

The list of artists he has shared the stage with and supported include: Bert Jansch, The Handsome Family, Dick Gaughan, and Nick Harper. Matt will be hitting the road to play local folk clubs this year, so look out for him.
