He has since shared the stage with the likes of Billy Childs, Jochen Rueckert, Matt Penman, and Regina Carter.
Joined by the Julien Wilson (tenor saxophone), Sam Anning (double bass) and Adelaide colleague, Angus Mason (drums), who co-led the 2018 album, Woman in the Stars. Nick will present new music rooted in jazz and improvisation combined with inspiration from winding folk melodies and raucous guitar music.
