Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

MU­SI­CIAN Steve Turner has been added to the guest list for this year’s Ten­ter­den Folk Fes­ti­val in Oc­to­ber. Or­gan­iser Alan Cas­tle said: “Steve be­gan his ca­reer on the Manch­ester folk scene at the end of the 1960s, joined the Ge­ordie band Canny Fet­tle in 1970 and went on to make two al­bums and tour in Bri­tain and Europe with them.” Win­ning a mu­sic award in 1979 per­suaded Steve Turner to turn pro­fes­sional for 12 years un­til 1991. Dur­ing this pe­riod he made four solo al­bums and toured in­ter­na­tion­ally. He then had 13 years away from the folk scene while he built up a vi­o­lin re­tail­ing busi­ness. Mr Cas­tle added: “2004 saw Steve make a re­turn to the folk scene.” For more de­tails of Steve Turner visit his web­site at http: //
