Welcome to Steve's music pages.
Most of my music advertising is now through Facebook, however this web page provides links to all my actvities with various band, duos and songwriters. I am a guitar / ukulele player from Kent in the UK. In 2020 clocking up 50 years of gigs across a range of styles. In 2012 I added the ukulele to my list of instruments and have been able to transfer a lot of my guitar licks and patterns to this little instrument..This means I don't really sound like any other 'uke' players, and my collaboration with Steve Ball as part of The Stevedores uke trio has garnered great reviews at recent festival appearances.
