Nigel Gavin

Nigel Gavin is probably New Zealand’s most accomplished acoustic guitarist, equally adept at adding his exquisite tones and contours as an accompanist to a wide variety of projects, or composing and improvising his solo work.

Gavin, who recently celebrated his 40th year as a professional musician, was born in Long Island, New York, and is of Jewish-Irish descent.
