Jason Steel is a singer & picker of stringed instruments.
Originally from Yorkshire, he currently rests his head in North London.
Shortly after joining The Owl Service in 2008, Jason began to record the songs that would make up the 'We Deserve Fire' 7" & the 'Eternal Embers' E.P (released on Midwich Records).
These weaved the sounds of Appalachian and ragtime picking, the strange, old worlds of traditional folk and the ghosts of 1920's Tin Pan Alley (both recorded live to a single microphone).
The results were effective; an emotional hinterland somewhere between Bert Jansch and Leonard Cohen, John Fahey and Cliff 'Ukulele Ike' Edwards.
His debut long player Fire Begot Ash garnered considerable praise in various quarters upon its release in March of 2010, followed by an invitation to record for the BBC at Maida Vale studios.
Jason records for Rif Mountain. He divides the rest of his time between staring at the moon, drawing old churches and listening to Leadbelly's 'Last Sessions’.

Bodmin Folk Club
Bodmin Folk Club
In 1967, a small group of enthusiasts who met weekly to sing in the Masons Arms decided to start a club to attract traditional performers to Cornwall. The first recorded club night of the Bodmin Traditional Folk Club was on 31st May 1968 in an upper room at The Barley Sheaf.
Since then, the club has met almost every single Friday night, welcoming a range of singers, musicians and occasional dancers from Britain and beyond at both guest nights and open houses.
Our new home is at St Petroc's Centre, opposite St Petroc's church. The Centre is not Licensed buy you're welcome to Bring Your Own ( Alcohol & Glasses! ). We've got Tea & Coffee, Soft drinks.
