Nicola's Biography: As well as many recitals in festivals across the UK, I had many rewarding years the 'Live Music Now!' scheme with my brother and our flutes/marimba duo. We also regularly entertained guests of HRH the Prince of Wales at Highrove, Windsor and Buckingham Palace. I toured in South America for the British Council and worked with London Philharmonic and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestras. I am currently recording the little-known but wonderful 96 unaccompanied pieces by Charles Koechlin 'Chants de Nectaire' and will soon perform a recent commission by composer Lois Wyat.
My love of folk music led me to recording a CD of music inspired by folk music of the British Isles, playing and recording Flamenco music, playing and singing in folk bands and co-founding the Rockhampton Folk Festival now in its fifth year.
