Arthur Nicholson was born to be a musician and play the guitar. Since he could first hold the instrument he has been mentored by his father, acclaimed Shetland guitarist Brian Nicholson (Hom Bru, Maggie & Brian, Sheila Henderson band etc) who himself has shared the stage with the likes of Albert Lee amongst others.
Writing and performing his own material has however been a more recent step for Arthur – but an immediately successful one. His debut album 'Sticks & Stones' was released in November 2013 to significant local acclaim, attracting first local and then national air-play for the album on BBC Radio Scotland. He has supported the likes of Ricky Ross, Dean Owens and Devon Sproule on their visits to Shetland.
Arthur recently put himself forward to take part in the prestigious and competitive ‘Danny Kyle Open Stage’ at this year’s ‘Celtic Connections’ Festival in Glasgow – ultimately carrying off one of only six hugely coveted ‘Danny Awards’ presented to outstanding artists (‘Winners’) during the near three-week event. With a support slot at next year’s Celtic Connections festival already in his diary, Arthur’s star is now very much on the rise and there is undoubtedly more to come.
