Visit Steve's site:
Steve began his career on the Manchester folk scene at the end of the
1960s. Joining the Geordie band "Canny Fettle" in 1970, he made two albums and toured in Britain and Europe with them for eight years. In 1979, he won the Melody Maker "Stars of the 80" National competition, which persuaded him to turn professional for 12 years until 1991. During this time he made four solo albums with Fellside Records and toured internationally.
A period of thirteen years away from the folk scene followed with Steve building a violin retailing business and diversifying musically into a more classical mode. But folk music has a habit of getting into your blood. So 2004 saw Steve make a somwhat nervous return to the folk scene, but he was warmly welcomed to the extent that he was almost immediately asked to make a new fifth album "The Whirlygig of Time" at Olli Knight's studio in Robin Hood's Bay which includes guests like Martin Carthy, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, Kevin Brown and others.
