STEVE TILSTON with Hugh Bradley on double bass

 

Steve is one of our most celebrated songsmiths, widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music; the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.    

Born in Liverpool and raised in the Midlands, Steve made his recording debut in 1971 and has been turning out quality albums ever since. Though known as a songwriter, Steve has always had an ear for the tradition and included new interpretations of old favourites on his original recordings. He joined an illustrious band of guitarists including Martin Simpson, Michael Messer and Wizz Jones, when he was invited to contribute to the Guitar Maestro series of DVDs. If anyone ever deserved the moniker Guitar Maestro, it’s Steve Tilston!

RICHARD DIGANCE PLATINUM TOUR

 

Is Richard Digance still going at 70 years of age? The answer is yes and he’s as powerful and prolific as ever. Despite the demand for his soundtrack and incidental music for TV and film, he’s still doing what he knows and loves best, performing on stage.

Nearly 3,000 songs and 34 albums later, Richard embarks on his 2019 Platinum Tour with the same enthusiasm he had when he first toured with Steeleye Span back in 1974. The fun chorus songs are all there, along with the heart-rending songs about life’s issues, plus his popular comedic poems.

Richard Digance is a master of his trade and yet no-one is more surprised than Richard himself that he has been getting away with it for so long.
