Steve returned to Bristol a place he used to call home to celebrate the release of the new trio album Happenstance with Keith Warmington & Stuart Gordon – it was a great evening you can read the review here… if you missed it, the trio are appearing just down the road in Bath on Friday 1 November…
It was a great honour to have Steve travel down to the shed specially to record this session as his trio with Keith Warmington and Stuart Gordon. Playing songs from their new album “Happenstance” …and it is obvious that the three of them are thoroughly enjoying working together. See the session here

Mike will be playing two tracks from Steve’s latest CD “Happenstance” - and if you miss the show, don’t worry – its on the Internet so you can listen again whenever you want, and you can even download the podcast of the whole show via iTunes.
Steve’s been performing with old pals Keith Warmington (harmonica) and Stuart Gordon (violin) a lot more lately and they’ve also recorded Steve’s next album together… it’s called Happenstance and is due for official release in early September – watch this space…
In the meantime the lucky folks at Folk on the Moor will have the unexpected chance to preview Happenstance with the trio line-up as Steve has invited Keith and Stuart to join him…
As Steve himself puts it, “there’s more than a bit of magic when we get together…it’s a musical equivalent of ‘three men in a boat’ and hopefully we make a bit of a splash!”

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.
