Steve has been playing folk, country and bluegrass music for more than 5 decades.
Steve’s brand of music relies heavily on his classic folk, country and bluegrass music and lyrics background to produce many of his original and sometimes quirky
tunes. His trademark is the unique manner in which he involves other musicians in his performances, usually in unrehearsed fashion. He also makes a point of getting his audiences involved in his on and off stage antics. Steve recently released his first feature-length CD entitled "TOOK TEN YEARS". This album includes musical assistance from a variety of performers that Steve has played with over the last 50 years, such as Shane Chisholm, Paul Hann, Wendell Ferguson, Cindy Church, Gary Okrainec, Paul Hann and Tyler Volrath.
He has been a part of several groups over the years, including The GP Three, Paul Hann (The Cockney Cowboy), The Shady Grovers, The Twisted Pickers and Strawberry Pie. Many of his musical collectives are composed of local artists who regularly perform at Open Stages around Edmonton and Alberta. Steve has appeared at many music festivals across Canada, including Winterfest (Edmonton), Mariposa, Regina Folk Fest and Edmonton Folk Fest. He also has served as the President of Edmonton's Uptown Folk Club for the last 20 years.
During his career, Steve has assisted other musicians with their careers through the provision of opportunities for them to perform at various musical venues with which he has been a part.
