Steve Skaith Band @ Lincoln Drill Hall

Steve Skaith Band - Latin Quarter revisited at Lincoln Drill Hall Saturday 4 June 8pm

Steve Skaith, born and bred in Lincoln, was the singer and co-writer of the band Latin Quarter, best known for the 80s hit single –‘Radio Africa’ and their collaboration with the Zimbabwean group, the Bhundu Boys in the 90‘s.

In 1999 after 6 albums, the band finally split up and Steve went to live in Mexico where he met and formed the Steve Skaith Band with Mexican musicians. They played regularly in that country as well as touring England and Germany 3 times. They produced three albums Mexile (2003), Empires and Us (2005) and Imaginary Friend (2007). These albums mix British folk Rock with Latin and even African sounds and rhythms. They are released on Plaene Records and Westpark Music.

Since returning to the UK in 2007, Steve has been playing with British musicians Catherine Burke (mandolin, whistles, flute and clarinet), Ant Lewis (bass) and until her terrible wrist injury last year, Siobhan Culhane (accordion.) They recently completed a new album, entitled LATIN QUARTER REVISITED. The new album, produced by Steve Jeffries, ex-Latin Quarter keyboard player, is a re-recording of early Latin Quarter songs but with a radically new sound. The songs chosen for this project, are not only there for Steve’s nostalgic pleasure but because, written with Latin Quarter lyricist Mike Jones, they contain a freshness and relevance that no one would have imagined when they were first recorded 20 years ago.

Tickets: £9 on the day (£8 advance) 01522 873894
