There will be a chance for the ever-growing army of Steve Gifford Band fans to catch them live at The Mill Arts Centre next month.

This will be their first appearance at The Mill and they will be supported by the Screaming House Madrigals.

Between the two bands they cover genres of folk,
folk-rock, alt country, blues and rockabilly.

Steve’s current album, Beaudesert, was released in May last year and was produced and engineered by Ben Walker, a BBC Folk Award winner in the best duo category.

Over the last 12 years, which have seen five studio albums, Steve has toured extensively, writing and performing his self-styled original contemporary folk, folk rock and blues.

His influences, such as Tom Petty, James Taylor, The Eagles, Jackson Brown and Joni Mitchell, have played a part in his song writing, he said.

In 2008 Steve opened for the US Grammy Award winner Shawn Colvin during her UK tour.

He has also supported some legendary names on the UK circuit, including Lindisfarne, Steve Harley, the Strawbs and Ten Years After.
