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.

Steve back in Bristol, his old home town…

On Sunday 10 June, Steve returns to perform at the Colston Hall in Bristol, the city that for many reasons has played a major part in his life.  It was here that Steve recorded his first album An Acoustic Confusion on the fledgling Village Thing label, he wrote some of his best-loved songs whilst living in the city and it’s 15th century Bristol that provides much of the backdrop for his first novel All for Poor Jack.  His input into the Bristol music scene is detailed in the Bristol Folk book too.  

He’ll be joined by Bristol music scene stalwarts and old pals, harmonica maestro (and popular Radio Bristol presenter) Keith Warmington and violin virtuoso (and sought after composer/producer) Stuart Gordon… expect something fabulous. Find out more and buy tickets here.
