|"With his expressive voice, varied repertoire and quietly charming stage manner, Steve is worth a place on anybody's bill."
|"When we worked with Steve at Chippenham Folk Festival, we were impressed by his wide ranging and varied material. We were, of course, particularly interested in his choice of Music Hall songs, which he performed with style, wit and - more importantly - charm. We were captivated. You will be too."|
Dave and Al Sealey, Cosmotheka.
"Steve has a tuneful voice, an excellent choice of songs and a wonderfully dry sense of humour. Having seen him win over a mainstage festival audience with a disarmingly modest but highly professional and entertaining performance, I can only say that he should be performing in such places more often."
"Chiefly Yourselves"Steve Jordan, aided and abetted by Mr. Ron Harries, presents some of the best songs and singers of The Good Old Days. A workshop style lighthearted and intriguing look at the history of the music hall.
"No ordinary working man "In this workshop Steve recounts his research into the life and times of Richard Hall, a great character and one of the sources from whom Dr. George Gardiner collected songs at the turn of the century. Steve sings many of Richard Hall's songs, and illustrates the show with slides of the Hall family and of the area in Hampshire in which they lived. A fascinating insight into the collecting process, and a must for anyone interested in traditional song and traditional singers.
"A most entertaining account of a painstaking piece of detective work. The joys and frustrations of the researcher are brought vividly to life, as indeed is the bygone singer himself. Steve is an excellent communicator, has some really nice slides, and sings the songs well, too!" Brian Peters
|Steve is experienced at both performing in and chairing Ballad Sessions, and has led workshops on the singing and presentation of ballads and narrative songs. Other workshops are also possible - please ask!|
