Steve Gifford band at Worcester Music Festival

A great night with the Steve Gifford Band headlining on Saturday.

After Worcester Music Festival Steve Gifford said

“It was worth the wait until we could finally get on stage at 10pm on the main night.
We followed 14 other artists and bands who I must say were of a pretty high standard.  The crowd were a bit high on alcohol by the time we did our set and I really hope they remembered us the next day”

Radio Oxford features Steve Gifford

Come and see Steve live at The Cellar, Oxford on Saturday 11th April 7:30pm

Well it was all going really well.. until BBC presenter Nick Piercey suggested that my early song writing days 13/14 years ago were triggered by a mid life crisis… I couldn’t help wonder if this statement was more about him than me…have a listen, see what you think… let me know ?

Steve and Jo dueting at Royston Folk Club

Steve and Jo Dervish played at Royston Folk Club in Friday 13th March as part of the regular showcase evening.

Varied and accomplished musicians performed and Steve sang two to his own songs.  After the interval Steve and Jo and a heartfelt duet, Peter Gabriel’s “Don’t Give Up”.  They followed it up with Steve’s song “Blame It On Me” and got a very warm reception.

Altogether a great evening of music.  Well worth going back again to see Steve and the other performers at Royston.

The mini Scottish tour September 2014

Steve Gifford ON TOURCrieff 12th Sept 2014 Venue@24

So I met up with Hilary in Fort William on the 10th Sept to rehearse for two Beaudersert Album concerts in Crieff and Arisaig 12th and 13th September.Dave Holmes(of Hard Drive Promotions)friend and generally great guy,arranged the gig in Crieff at Spikes’( Mike Stevensons’)  Venue@24/bistro in the town centre.

The hospitality was fantastic, Dave and Spike looked after us and we had a full house for the gig.Accompanied by Hilary on cello we re created the accompanied songs from Beaudesert and went on to play songs from Ungodly Hour Boy on a beach and even a couple of Tom Petty covers which went down well !! Shame I didnt write them.

The 2nd gig at Arisaig was again well attended but this time by a more mature audience, many classically trained musicians came along, friends of Hilary,who very kindly forgave me for my primitive tuning technique of the Ukelele, to the melody of “my dogs’got flees”. Again we got some feet tapping without any physical injuries.Scotland we’ll be back !!
