67 London Road,


Steve Tilston 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 with 'An Acoustic Confusion' and has been turning out quality albums ever since. Life by Misadventure, And So It Goes, Solo Rubato and Such and Such all featuring first-class song-writing and stylistically Tilston, marking him out as one of this country’s finest writers, whilst the instrumental Swans at Coole is testament to his guitar virtuosity.
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. Of Many Hands is his first “all-traditional” album; with unique arrangements of timeless classics. There’s also a “best of” anthology, The Greening Wind and a live album Live Hemistry recorded on tour with Fairport Convention. His latest album Distant Days, a paired back voice and guitar recording; nineteen tracks - solo acoustic renditions of his best songs plus a few new ones

Moreover the fascinating story of Steve’s “lost” letter from John Lennon inspired the Hollywood movie 'Danny Collins' starring Al Pacino in the title role.

Many others have recorded Steve’s songs. Furthermore 'Here’s to Tom Paine' has been adopted as theme song for the Tom Paine Society of America and there have been countless versions of arguably his most enduring song 'The Slipjigs & Reels'
