Steve Turner

Steve Turner

His career began on the Manchester folk scene at the end of the 1960s, with the Geordie band “Canny Fettle”, who he toured with for eight years and made two albums.

In 1979 he won the Melody Maker’s “Stars of the 80s” competition, which persuaded him to turn professional, and for the next 12 years he toured solo, both nationally and internationally, releasing four albums with Fellside Records.

After taking a break from the folk scene for 13 years he returned in 2004, performing in folk clubs and festivals.

In 2008 he produced his fifth album, the highly acclaimed Whirligig of Time, which featured UK luminaries Martin Carthy, Nancy Kerr and Miranda Sykes.

Since then he has released further albums and his latest, Late Cut, featuring Eliza Carthy, Martin Simpson and Sam Carter, was released in January 2019.
