Nothing Concrete c’est un groupe folk rock original créé en 2008 par Fergus McKay à Edimburgh, une musique festive, conviviale et internationale ! Un mélange d’influences folk-celtique, blues, swing et calypso. Une course musicale autour du monde, riche, dansante et visuelle ! Nothing Concrete (re)vient à votre rencontre en mélodie avec la ferme intention de vous faire partager leur voyage et le tempo soutenu de leur univers frais et enthousiaste.

Ce n’est pas tous les jours que l’on reçoit un baroudeur écossais capable de jouer dans la rue et de collaborer avec Leo Sayer ou Edwyn Collins et qui choisit de s’installer en Ariège pour continuer son parcours.
Et on ne résiste pas au plaisir de vous donner une courte bio du bonhomme… mais en anglais !

Songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, travelling troubadour and one man band, record producer and founder of Nothing Concrete, Fergus is a diverse talent with many strings to his bow. Based in the South of France from where he runs his many projects, Fergus's songs and voice have been compared to The Waterboys, Dylan and Joe Strummer.
Years of travelling the world have helped to broaden his musical horizons and he is as comfortable playing balkan or south American rhythms and styles as the celtic and Americana roots music he grew up with. Working in formations from his traditional one man band "Bandolino" act through the ever changing line-up of Nothing Concrete, to producing the "humanitarium" albums that bring musicians from around the world together in Fergus's studio, he is constantly striving to create music that sounds real, communicates to the listener, and avoids cliché and overproduction.
With a UK based publishing deal and a distribution and licensing deal in the USA, exciting collaborations on the go, having worked with and supported such acts as Grammy award winner Joan Armatrading, Leo sayer and Rick Wakeman amongst others over the years, a new Humanitarium album, the forthcoming release of the debut Nothing Concrete album and an upcoming 2015 summer tour, Fergus is certainly keeping busy!

Fergus's extensive live experience has made him a captivating performer who relishes situations where he can really connect with his audience.Check the website to hear sound files, watch videos, find out about his other projects or to find out where he is playing next.
