nicky tams ['nIki t-a-ms] n. strings or leather straps with buckles once used by Scottish farmers to keep their trousers out of the mud, so their pants were clean for night-time dancing to The Nicky Tams ['nIki t-a-ms] n. A four piece Celtic band of young, lively Edmonton musicians. Blending the sounds of cello, fiddle, guitar, flute and the Scottish Smallpipes, as well distinct vocal styles from all four members, The Nicky Tams sound is striking and instantly recognizable.

This group uses their unique mix of Celtic, jazz and classical training to create music that is firmly grounded in the Scottish tradition and also explores modern musical forms, allowing for harmonic and rhythmic freedom. Each of the group members contributes artistically, writing original compositions, original songs, and new arrangements of traditional music. All of the Nicky Tams are fluent improvisers, taking improvised solos at live performances and recording sessions.

The Nicky Tams are a band whose youthful passion inevitably spills over to audiences of all kinds. Whether they’re on the Main stage at North Country Fair or they’re starting a toddler dance party at Edmonton's Old Strathcona Farmers Market they are not a band to miss.
