Nicholas Williams

Nicholas Williams has developed a reputation as a versatile and sought-after musician in the traditional music scenes of Québec and New England.  His rhythmic yet nuanced style of flute playing draws from Irish and Scottish traditions, as well as from his studies of classical North Indian music.

After completing a BFA in world music and composition at York University, Nicholas moved to Québec in 2000, where he has enjoyed exploring the common ground of his own diverse musical experiences with the rich Québécois musical tradition.

Also an accomplished accordion and piano player, he has been a member of the band Genticorum since 2000, in Crowfoot since 2005, plays with fiddler Laura Risk, and also is half of the Alex Kehler & Nicholas Williams duo.
