Steve did a short interview for North West Tonight talking about the new film Danny Collins inspired by the story of his “lost” John Lennon letter and starring Al Pacino. Watch on iplayer starts just after 18 minutes into the programme. Sorry programme no longer available.
The new film Danny Collins, featuring Al Pacino in the title role, loosely inspired by the story of Steve’s “lost” letter from John Lennon, is released in the USA this week. You can read the New York Times feature, including excerpts from Steve’s interview here
Two of the UK Acoustic/Folk scene’s finest songwriters join forces for a series of concerts filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft.
Head to head, neck and neck (guitar necks, that is!) listen in as they rekindle the spontaneity of their late-night living-room song swaps. Questions, answers, anecdotes and anarchy… and a very special evening of music.
You may remember that Steve ran a one-day guitar and song-writing workshop in his hometown of Hebden Bridge back in May. It was a huge success and due to popular demand, he’s decided to run another, this time in his second home, Bristol.
It will be on Saturday 6 September 2014, in the Music Room at the Bristol Folk House, Park Street, Bristol BS1 5JG, a venue well known for delivering a wide-ranging adult education programme.
Aimed at developing and experienced guitar players and aspiring songwriters, the workshop will start at 10.00 a.m. and run throughout the day finishing around 6.00 p.m. The sessions will be relaxed and informal, but provide opportunities to work on specific aspects of both guitar and songwriting. Steve will share his approach, drawing on his extensive back catalogue and wide ranging musical influences. The day will wind down with a relaxed open-mic-style-session, to give everyone an opportunity (not compulsory!) to showcase their talents.
After the workshop, there will be an option to share an evening meal together somewhere nearby (details TBC).
The price is just £150 for the day – to reserve a place/further enquiries email Steve email@example.com or contact him via the form on his website
A deposit of £50 (non returnable) will be required email for details.
Steve’s looking forward to seeing you in Bristol!
