Colin Nicholson hails from Orkney and began learning the piano accordion at the age of nine. As a student of accordion aficionado, and Royal Academy of Music graduate, Ian Lowthian, Colin played in bands and taught in Orkney all his young life.

After leaving school he spent a year at Stow College in Glasgow studying Traditional Music, before taking up his place at Newcastle University on the BMus Folk and Traditional Music degree course from which he graduated in summer 2012.

Since graduating he has toured the UK, Ireland, Europe and Australia extensively with acts including Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra, Black Market Tune (Austria), Dogan Mehmet, Thea Gilmore and The Treacherous Orchestra.

Colin continues to be based in Newcastle and alongside touring he also teaches privately, in schools and regularly at residential events and workshops for organisations including Halsway Manor, Folkus, Kirkgate Arts and Yn Chruinnaght (Isle of Man). He currently has space for private students in the North East.
