Steve Lane is an accomplished singer equally at home with traditional and contemporary material. He accomplishes himself with tasteful guitar and even a hurdy gurdy now and again. Being a winner of the Rothbury traditional singer competition is testament to his unaccompanied , singing as well. He is regularly seen around the Teesside folk scene and comperes the monthly Stokesley Club as well as the Sun Inn at Stockton from time to time. A new CD "Free as a Bird" has just been completed that captures a number of his most appreciated songs, including self-penned material, and gave him the chance to harmonize with himself in the bargain.
Big influences in the reportoire have come from right across the folk spectrum, from Paul Simon through Ralph McTell, to Nic Jones, Peter Bellamy, Mick Ryan, and last but not least trad. Steve can usually find a song to fit most occasions.
