Steve Tilston is a celebrated British singer-songwriter, winning
as much praise for his superb guitar playing as his song writing and vocal
style. His most famous song is 'Slip Jigs and Reels'
Born in Liverpool and raised in the Midlands of England, Steve has been
ploughing his own artistic furrow, turning out quality albums since the
early 1970s. In the past Steve has toured as guitarist with Ballet Rambert;
as a member of Ship of Fools; with John Renbourn; and more recently WAZ!
From a career that spans more than thirty years, some of Tilston's best known songs include, "The Slip Jigs & Reels"; "The Naked Highwayman" and "Here's To Tom Paine" (adopted recently by The Tom Paine Society Of America as its theme song.)
Tilston songs have been recorded by Fairport Convention, Dolores Keane, The House Band, Peter Bellamy, North Cregg, Bob Fox, amongst other fine artists. His work has also been used for radio and TV documentary work.
