Nicholas Male, who was born in Plymouth in 1953, moved to live in the area in around 1955 when his late father George Male took up a new role at Elstree Rural District Council. Nick attended Borehamwood Grammar School and studied at Warwick University, and Wall Hall, becoming a primary school teacher; teaching in different area's of the country.
Nick took an interest in folk music from an early age, co-founding a local folk music group, the Woodmen, and the Borehamwood Folk Club, now Hertsmere Acoustic Club. He, with his music friends within the town, organise a monthly evening of music-making for all to enjoy,
