Person holding acoustic guitar

Multi-award winning singer-songwriter Steve Knightley writes and performs historically accurate, traditional folk songs that resonate with contemporary meaning. He has an extraordinary ability to bring the past vividly into the present.

A constant throughout his work is his ability to root his songs in geographical place, notably the West Country where he still lives.

Steve’s talent as a songwriter has earned him several accolades, including four BBC Folk Awards. Steve was also a founder member of widely acclaimed folk/acoustic roots trail-blazers Show of Hands, a band that has been praised by Peter Gabriel as “one of the great English bands”.

He has recorded over thirty albums and played on several tracks, including the title track from Mick Jagger‘s solo album Goddess in the Doorway.
