New Roots presents… Steve Dagleish
The quintessential folkie, STEVE DAGLEISH’s style follows a long line of great British singer-songwriters, from Roy Harper to John Martyn. His beautifully compassionate songs range from the personal to the political, always sung with searing honesty and told with a razor-sharp focus on the things that truly matter. He plays this evening accompanied by Ben Richardson on additional guitar and Carolyne Locher on backing vocals.
“Steve Dagleish is a wonderful, engaging performer who combines all the skills of the best singer songwriters.” Trevor Lloyd Songwriters Circle Radio Show, 10 Radio
“There was a time when I’d say that a big label should snap him up but in the current climate I’d say he was doing well enough by himself.” Dai Jeffries Folking.com
“The essential ‘man with guitar’ album will never go out of style, it’s just that some do it so much better than others. To hear how it should be done listen to ‘Yours for Eternity’ from Steve Dagleish.” Tim Carroll FolkWords
