FOR those fans of Nahko and there are thousands, they might like to know he could do a storytelling album called Bedtime with the Bear-here is dreaming.

What is a fact is last year he was in the UK in December to support his debut album My Name Is Bear, and now he is returning for a special acoustic tour.

For his fans in Somerset, he will be with us in on April 21, when he will be at Assembly Rooms, Glastonbury.

A hugely accomplished pianist and guitarist, the shows will bring a different interpretation to both his new solo work and his catalogue with Medicine For The People.

On this tour of acoustic music he will be joined on stage by Trevor Hall, whose latest album, The Fruitful Darkness, became the #1 Kickstarter Music campaign of 2017 and features the new single ‘What I Know’.

I had read a lot of interviews online with Nahko and really did not know what to expect.

Would it be good? Would it be bad? Would I just get it all wrong?

By the time I put the phone down after 20 minutes, I felt I had done well and had even told Nahko I hope he had enjoyed his cereal which he been eating on the QT (quiet) during the interview.

It was a moment to enjoy.

But what had I asked him? The interview aimed to focus on the type of man Nahko is and how he came to be the music star he is today.

Many people think, many believe they have a guardian angel, in Nahko's case he believes music is his guardian angel.

He said: "Absolutely without a doubt.

"I do not know what I would have done without it.

"Music has guided me and pointed me in a different direction and introduced me to so many different people.

"It (music) has been a definite influence on me."

What is clear not at first from listening to Nahko's song but when you read the lyrics is how much like folk music his songs are in the way in which the words are like poetry and the listener or in this case the reader can follow the tale.

Commenting on this he said: "Totally and absolutely.

"Folk music has played a big part in my life and has helped shape me.

"I think we need to preserve the tradition of storytelling, the tradition of oral tradition of passing on stories and morals to another generation.

"This is how we remember our history.

"They (the songs) can be read almost as poetry in so many ways and a way of sharing and I would like to do it sitting around a camp fire so we can understand the past and future.

"It would be like Bedtime with the Bear."

Nahko's songs are very personal, they come as he said 'with his own watermark'.

He is very happy to write personal songs as for him this way of doing it allows himself to express himself and by doing it acts like a medicine which can heal or help via its melody and harmonies.

Many singer/songwriters might want to shy away from this style of writing or twist it so it is not so personal.

For Nahko it is not the way, he loves being authentic, loves putting in all the details and 'making the juice' in telling his stories and as he said 'singing it his way'.

This is The West Country:

And when was the first time Nahko listened to music for the first time and he knew it was important.

He said: "Oh good question. I don't know if I can remember one occasions.

"It has been cumulative over time.

"I remember going to church and the only thing I enjoyed from it was the music.

"There was a spirit in the music and this lead me to enjoy other different music like classical or jazz.

"It wasn't until I was 15-years-old when I started writing songs when I could sense the same power expressed in my music."
