We welcome Steve Tilston back for his 4th visit to the Arts Centre, he has helped us build a reputation for great nights with great musicians. This is your chance to see one of the great folk singer songwriters of the last 50 years.
Steve is one of our most celebrated song smiths, widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music; the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.
“The more you listen, the more there is to discover.” Bob Harris
