Steve Wickham

Many music fans will know Steve Wickham from his virtuoso violin playing in The Waterboys, with whom he has played for over thirty years. In addition, Steve's live and studio performances have made him- if not quite a househild name- than certainly a household sound. His recording debut was on U2's 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' in 1982, and his Waterboys cover of Prince's 'Purple Rain, demonstrating his fuzz-fiddle' technique live on BBC R2, left Chris Evans awestruck: "The best cover we've ever had in the studio", he said of the performance. Other artists with whom Steve has played include Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello and Sinead O'Connor. Band- mate and musical collaborator Mike Scott has described Steve as 'the world's greatest rock fiddle player'. Expect a career-spanning set featuring numbers from his second solo release 'Beekeeper'.
