Nicolas Meier World Group 

Sunday 19th September 2021 at 3.30pm

at Teign Corinthian Yacht Club. (Doors at 3pm)

Just 20 tickets left: Tickets £12 available online here and from Regent Style, Teignmouth.

Nicolas Meier has headlined at several of our festivals and also featured in Gabrielle Ducomble’s band in the third and last in our current series of “Ladies sing” concerts at the Pavilions Theatre in June. This was yet another sell out gig and, while Gabrielle herself was sublime, the artistry of the musicians was also a highlight for many in the audience.

Born in Switzerland but based in the UK, guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the world’s most original and uniquely talented guitarists. Drawing from a love of Turkish, Eastern & Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango and more — all mixed with jazz — Meier’s versatility and musical fluency extends well beyond that, even. He has even toured the world twice with rock guitar legend, Jeff Beck.

Nicolas let us know he was touring the South West and the UK, so we had to have him back on his way through. He brings an unusual line-up of guitar, bass, violin and tablas (Indian percussion) playing jazz with world music influences. This is our first “matinee” performance and we believe some relaxed, world jazz vibes in the beautiful Yacht club setting (bar included) will make for the perfect Sunday afternoon.

“Like so many artists, “live” is where it’s at for Meier. His buoyant stage presence, the range of colors he eases from his choir of guitars and related instruments, and the passion he has for his unique meld of Turkish, Balkan and jazz modes make his gigs a vibrant experience, a mezzo of the marvelous. And the band aren’t bad either.”
