Faldingworth Live''Steve Tilston

TWO of the country’s best singer-songwriters will be performing at Faldingworth Memorial Hall this Saturday, September 3.

The latest Faldingworth Live concert event will see both Allan Taylor and Steve Tilston take to the stage.

For more than 30 years, Allan Taylor has been on the road, travelling and performing around the world, observing it, writing about it and the characters he’s met en route.

Each song is a vignette of life, like a story told over a drink in a bar – characters come to life and become people you recognise or know.

Barbara Dickson, Don Williams and Nana Maskouri have all recorded songs written by Allan, so – as he says at the beginning of each concert – “sit back and enjoy the journey.”

Steve Tilston is celebrating 40 years as a professional musician.

Ask anyone on the English acoustic scene who their favourite guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer is and nine times out of ten the same name will crop up in the top three of every department.

As the writer of the classic songs The Slipjigs and Reels, Here’s to Tom Paine and The Naked Highwayman, Steve is one of the country’s most celebrated song-smiths and is widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music.

Tickets cost £10 and doors open at 7.15pm (8pm start).

To reserve tickets for payment on the door contact Les Worrall on 01673 843036 or Dave Longden 01673 885369.
