Steve Tilston is a folk veteran of some 40 years standing now based in Hebden Bridge, while the Durbervilles are a lively upbeat country roots band who have been playing together over 10 years and recorded 3 albums "from the delta of Batley" West Yorkshire. Steve invited the Durbervilles to join him at his legendary local venue The Trades Club in 2011, and they clicked in live performance and went down well with the audience. They subsequently played some higher profile festivals together , and appeared on Jools Holland's Later. On the back of their successful and enjoyable live concerts, they recorded this 5 track EP. Oxenhope after which this EP is named is a small village nestling in a bowl in the south Pennines , half way between Hebden and Keithley, a beautiful remote spot in the middle of the moorland hills. Like the previous reviewer, I do not normally go for EP's, regarding them as poor value for money, or a cheap promotional ploy, but I bought this when attending one of Steve's local gigs . I am glad I took the gamble, as the surprising combination of the renowned folk veteran with a lively country roots band brings out the best of both of them. Multi part harmonies and a full instrumental backing bring new colour and texture to 4 of Steve's songs to great effect , with the opening track Oil and Water from his The Reckoning album an initial highlight. There is also a new song from the Durbervilles , and for a fiver on the night of the concert, this has been a very enjoyable regular listen.Read more ›

OK, so I nearly consigned this 5-track CD to the "don't bother" pile. Perhaps I should explain...I hate half-cocked albums with only a few tracks and, for some reason becoming ever more popular with `folk' artists. A lot of my mates, myself included feel cheated and after all, if you've only got half an album then why bother? Still, now that I've got that off my chest I'm pleased to report that this is a really nice recording. The reason I played it in the first place was to hear the dulcet tones and technically flawless guitar from the always excellent Steve Tilston. That he is joined by the equally impressive `country-ish' sound of The Durbervilles; Lee Walker (12-string guitar), David Crickmore (banjo, mandolin & electric guitar), Mark Boyce (drums), Gus Taylor (accordion) and Ruth Wilde (double bass and bass guitar) with nearly all members contributing vocals really create an impressive wall of sound. From the subtle groove of the opening track "Oil And Water" to the up-beat Big Geraniums (remember them?) sounding "There She Blows" between them the `band' manage to make every track count so perhaps I shouldn't have been so dismissive in the first place but please, next time make it the full Monty! By the way, is it me or does anyone else hear a young Dave Burland (without the burr) in Steve's voice or perhaps maybe I'm being a tad obsequious?
