Steve Turner -- Outstack
Fellside FEO18 (1979)

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

... just passing through and noticed this - I saw Steve Turner last year (remember him from way back when he was superb) and he is singing and playing as good as he ever did... a welcome return for a great talent... actually going to see him (UK gig) in a few weeks and looking forward to it

Steve Turner is the best, and so is this website. Many thanks, Lizardson. I hope you'll put this album up again one day.
