This review is from: Happenstance (Audio CD)
Another cracking CD from Steve Tilston to follow Ziggurat and The Reckoning and signs that Steve is in a nice mellow and relaxed space, enjoying the trio setting (with Keith Warmington on harmonica and Stuart Gordon on violin and a load of other instruments) and mixing new songs and trademark instrumentals with traditional songs and a couple of reworkings of songs from Steve's back catalogue. that the trio format lends new angles to.

There are some really good new songs-"Far side of the World" , a poignant song that sounds original traditional and "Jam Tomorrow" which takes up the theme of "the Reckoning" of young people being sold out and trashed by their elders ." Beulah Road" makes you want to be trucking through North Wales feeling glad to be alive . A jazzy Jimmy Guiffre /Jim Hall instrumental , a folky "Little Norris" a Yeats poem set to music, "Martin Says" and "Courting is my pleasure" and a few more classy trio reworks make up a great relaxing album throughout which a sense of fun and talented musicians feeding off each other shines out. Looking forward to the tour with the trio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album, 9 Dec 2013

This review is from: Happenstance (MP3 Download)
Yet another superb album from Steve Tilston; I have to admit I wasn't aware of Steve until I saw the wonderful songwriter's Circle that he was on with Michael Chapman and Martin Simpson. Since then I've bought a few albums and seen Steve live just once. He is an extremely talented singer/songwriter and I find it surprising that more people aren't aware of this English treasure. This album is sheer joy, track after track; IMO there isn't a bad/poor track on the whole thing. I bought the download and haven't stopped listening to it all week. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good songs and instrumentation, well presented., 28 Oct 2013

Steve Tilston is one of those artists that improves with age. His last four or five albums are some of the best in my collection. His collaboration with others on this album brings out another level of dignified maturity in the treatment of the songs.
