Steve Turner is known as a pioneer of highly sophisticated English concertina song accompaniments, stretching the boundaries of traditional forms, with one of the best voices in the business. He is a multi-instrumentalist, who also accompanies himself on the cittern, and also plays mandolin and banjo. Steve began his career on the Manchester, UK folk scene at the end of the ‘60s, with the Geordie band Canny Fettle, touring with them for eight years and making two albums with them.
In 1979 he won the UK Melody Maker’s national Stars of the 80s competition, which persuaded him to turn professional, and for the next 12 years he toured solo, nationally and internationally, releasing four albums with Fellside Records during this period (Out Stack, Jigging One Now, Eclogue and Braiding).
