A Preston-born rock and folk musician will perform a ‘rare’ concert at a popular local venue this September.

Ken Nicol will perform with ‘Lockstep’ at The Ferret on Friday, 9 September. Ken last performed in the area in February 2020 at a concert for Friends of Folk at Fox Lane Sports and Social Club before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The musician said the upside to the lockdowns was the time he could dedicate to writing new material and planning a ‘fresh approach’ in preparation for when venues would eventually raise the curtains and unlock their doors.

Ken said: “It’s good to be performing back in my home town again, especially with these guys. I’ve been away far too long, and I’m looking forward to catching up with friends.”

Lockstep comprises drummer Paul Burgess, a mainstay of 10cc since the 1970s; violinist Wendy Ross from the folk group Magna Carta; and Norman Helm, a bass guitarist from the local jazz-rock band Free Parking.

The Ferret is located at 55 Fylde Road, Preston, PR1 2XQ.
