Steve Tilston Trio… late addition to Helmsley Folk Weekend programme

Unfortunately Dana & Susan Robinson have had to cancel their upcoming UK tour; luckily the Steve Tilston Trio has been able to step in and cover one of the shows for them and will be performing at the afternoon concert at Helmsley Folk Weekend on Sunday 30 September. Dana had an accident, shattering bones in his wrist and can’t play his instruments, and is really devastated not to be coming to the UK this year. We  would like to wish Dana a speedy recovery and look forward to catching up with Dana & Susan in 2013.
