Steve & Dee have been playing music for many years. Steve picked up a guitar over 50 years ago as a result of the Bert Wheedon "Play in a day" famous book, and Hank Marvin and the Shadows but took a change in direction when he saw Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick in the late 60's. Steve sings a variety of modern and traditional folk songs and plays guitar, mandolin and bouziki. Dee started singing and playing when she was 16 with influences from many sources across the range of folk singers of the time. Dee plays a multitude of instruments, flute, saxaphone, guitar, electric base, alto and soprano sax. She sang and played in the local clubs and joined Steve in the Foresters in 1976, who continue to play as a 5 piece band. Steve plays as a duo with Dee at festivals, various clubs and singarounds. The combination of the various instruments and wide range of songs from folk and other genres available to Steve and Dee results in a varied programme, hopefully to please all.
