It's something that until 2010 was utterly unthinkable. Even after his unexpected re-emergence it was going to be very, very unlikely. I'm talking about the fact that this afternoon I purchased a ticket to see the great Nic Jones in concert. I've typed the sentence, but can still barely believe it's true. After four years of sporadic festival appearances, Nic and his son Joseph have announced a short tour of small venues in October, so if you live in, or near, Swansea, Leicester, Bristol, Birmingham, Norwich or Lewes, get over to Nic's official website and bag yourself a ticket pronto. These will be emotionally charged evenings.
