The 2023 Solo Tour

‘Unlock Me & Other Lockdown Laments’

In a brand new one man show Steve will perform material that surfaced over two years of isolation and inactivity. Songs such as the ‘Bristol Slaver’ and ‘You’ll Get By’ were refreshed by headlines and current affairs whilst classic covers such as ‘Forever Young’ and ‘The Boys of Summer’ struck a chord with the thousands that tuned in to his hours of online content.

Insights, anecdotes and a bunch of new songs will attempt to chronicle and draw a line under an extra episode in all our lives.

Informed by a love of narrative and English traditional folk music, Knightley writes historically accurate songs that resonate with contemporary meaning. He has an extraordinary ability to bring the past vividly, smack bang into the present. It’s a gift that fuels his reputation as an ‘issues’ writer. The seminal ‘Country Life’ earned him the title ‘the gravel voiced spokesman of the rural poor’ and his anti-banking rant ‘Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed’ picked up the gong for ‘Best Song’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Steve has a degree in History and Politics and in 2015 he was presented with an Honorary Doctorate from Plymouth University for his services to geography and music. Steve is also Patron of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and last year he was awarded the title of Honorary Rifleman by the 6th Battalion the Rifles Regiment.
