Benedictine at Innsbruck
Nigel Egg grew up in England. He became a professional musician at age eight, singing in the Saint George Cathedral choir where he earned sixpence for rehearsal, a shilling for Sunday service and half-a-crown for a funeral.
As time went on, he played in numerous cover bands – blues, rock, country – until one day he wrote a song that people seemed to like.
This was the start of a life-long addiction to writing and performing his own music. Nigel has travelled many miles hoping to create those precious moments when time stops, and the audience and the performer become united in the here and now of the music.
He doesn’t play many clubs these days – he prefers smaller groups of people who really like to play and listen to original music – listening rooms, house concerts, songwriter showcases. And, during daytime hours, senior audiences - click here to see the Senior Music site
Nigel Egg plays original folk, blues and Americana songs and a very personal collection of soulful American Roots music. His songwriting and his ability to play soulful blues harp and guitar at the same time has won multiple awards from organizations like the Minnesota Folk Festival, the Austin (TX) Songwriters Group and the Telluride (CO) Blues and Brews festival.
Nigel is still trying to find himself through his songwriting and music, but he only seems to get further astray and deeper into the great mystery.
