THE latest line up of Folk in the Foyer brings one of the most innovative musicians in the business, Steve Turner, to Evesham Arts Centre.

Known as a pioneer of highly sophisticated English concertina song accompaniments, stretching the boundaries of traditional forms, Steve is a multi-instrumentalist, who also accompanies himself on the cittern, and plays mandolin and banjo.

A spokesman said: " After a thirteen year break, building up an internationally known stringed instrument business, he made a welcome return to performing in folk clubs and festivals in 2005.

"Steve’s fifth album, his first for 22 years "The Whirligig of Time" was listed for the BBC folk awards in 2008. His sixth album "Rim of the Wheel" was released in spring 2012 and received rave reviews."

In a recent interview, folk legend Nancy Kerr was asked "what was the best gig you ever saw?" and she answered: "The best spot I've seen recently was Steve Turner - total intensive musical focus and a vast serious repertoire".

There will also be support on the night from Evesham singer-songwriter Colin Pitts.

The show will take place on Thursday, April 20, from 8pm
