Steve Tilston is one of our most celebrated song smiths, widely recognised within

the world of folk and contemporary music; the words, arrangements and subtle,

quite superb guitar playing could be no one else. 

“The more you listen to Steve Tilston, the more there is to discover.” Bob Harris

The story of Steve’s “lost” letter from John Lennon thrust Steve into the worldwide media spotlight and

was the inspiration for a Hollywood movie. Danny Collins, starring Al Pacino in the title role is now

available to own on DVD. Sadly, Steve’s songs didn’t actually appear on the soundtrack, but the publicity

surrounding the film, brought Steve and his music to much wider attention. You can still watch the clip of

when Steve met Al on YouTube.

Steve was also voted, Fatea Awards Male Vocalist of the Year 2015 and 'Truth to Tell' was

chosen as one of The Telegraph’s top folk albums that year too.

2021 saw the release of Such Times and the continuation of the connection with Riverboat Records begun with Distant Days; Steve’s solo acoustic retrospective, from 2018. In Such Times Steve takes on

the role of social commentator and storyteller; 15-tracks almost exclusively new material, recorded

during the first national lockdown. The release coincided with the 50th anniversary of his debut album, 

An Acoustic Confusion in 1971. After more than fifty years in the business Steve can still deliver the goods.

With Frankie on sax, vocals, clarinet, flute, guitar and percussion and Pete on guitar, vocal, ukulele,

tres (traditional Cuban guitar), banjo, accordion and between them all kinds of percussion including

suitcase and spoons!
Pete and Frankie have been gathering admirers at shows and festivals the length and

breadth of the country.

A fabulous uplifting musical treat is in store wherever they roll up, their tour bus packed to the brim!

“The sheer enthusiasm and joy of their music, along with their wonderful musicianship and great stage

Joe Martin 

Croft Park Live Lounge 

Joe Martin is a Country and Americana singer songwriter from the Ribble Valley but has for the past few years been based in Leeds. Joe has always been surrounded by music, brought up listening to artists such as the Beatles, the Eagles, James Taylor, Bob Dylan.

                                                            As a youngster, listening to a wide range of genres from the 60s pop of the Beatles and Beach Boys to American folk artists like Simon and Garfunkel and Bob Dylan, Joe knew that he wanted to recreate that magic feeling of a captivating story through songwriting.

Now, the comment he receives most from his live audience is; ‘your songs sound beyond your years’.

His descriptive lyrics capture the stories of people and encounters picked up on the road. Tales of friends and strangers blend seamlessly with Joe’s own experiences into masterfully crafted songs that paint a picture with every verse and the magic of his live performance lies is in his ability to connect a room of people with 

the emotions of a life they have not lived. (scroll down events to HAM)
