Steve Tilston Trio
An hour of the best folk and acoustic music from Britain and beyond, including a live session from the Steve Tilston Trio.
Mark Radcliffe presents an hour of the best folk and acoustic music from Britain and beyond, including the latest releases, classic tracks and news from the folk world.
This week, the Steve Tilston Trio join Mark in our Salford studio for a live session.
Steve - born in Liverpool but now resident in West Yorkshire - released his first album 42 years ago. The story goes that Rod Stewart was so impressed that he ordered a boxful of LPs to share with his friends.
Acclaimed for both his guitar playing and songwriting, Steve's song The Reckoning, from the 2011 album of the same name, earned him a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Original Song.
His latest project is a trio including Stuart Gordon on violin and other instruments, and Keith Warmington on harmonica. On this week's Folk Show, the three of them join Mark to perform tracks from their new album, Happenstance.
