"Big Steve" founded Hedgepig back in 1993 with "Little Steve" Matthews, the most recent in a long line of White influenced folk-rock groups.
Originally from Inverness, Steve grew up in South West Scotland where he aquired a love for folk and a lively collection of traditional songs which he later smuggled down South to us.
After beginning his performing life in Scotland with bands such as Totty Boggle, Steve eventually moved to Cambridge in 1989. It was here he first met Little Steve and together they formed bands Frayed Knot and then Devils Rant.
Obviously influential bands on Steve are The Tannahill Weavers and Wolfstone, but delving into his record collection reveals the rock side of folk-rock with AC/DC and The Cult.
