Ken Hyder

Scottish percussionist, improviser, and musician of eclectic tastes Ken Hyder began his career of blending jazz with a variety of world and folk musics in the late '60s when he formed his first band, the jazz and Celtic group Talisker. Among Hyder's projects are his long-standing collaboration (over two decades) with avant-garde pianist Maggie Nicols, called Hoots and Roots, and an equally long musical relationship with revered improviser Tim Hodgkinson.
