Steve Turner comes from a family of singers and concertina players. His grandfather was known to have sung and played the instrument in the 1890's.

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 80s" 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 asked to make a new fifth album, which is now completed, at Ollie Knight's studio in Robin Hood's Bay and includes guests like Martin Carthy, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, Kevin Brown and others.

Steve has a new CD - "The Whirligig of Time" which is due for release 21st march 2008. He was the featured artist and on the cover of the January/February 2008 (Issue 77) Edition of "The Living Tradition" magazine. Read some of the interview with Steve online.

"A shining example of the music the British folk scene is capable of producing."
