singer songwriter & guitarist

Steve’s Folk on the Moor show this Sunday is now with the Trio!

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!”
