In the 1960's, the group were initially known as the Birmingham Folk Four, becoming The Settlers after their first single, "Settle Down". Then came 'The Lightning Tree', made famous as the theme tune for TV's 'Folly Foot Farm'.
The group went through a short transitional period in 1975, experimenting with an electric sound however it was apparent that audiences preferred the original sound, so Steve and Patty were asked to join Mike Jones to return The Settlers to their original, acoustic, close harmony, melodic style.
After the band disbanded in the 80's, Steve and Patty went on to work with many of the worlds biggest stars of stage and screen including Glen Campbell, Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Cash, Don Everly, Johnny Tillotson, Lulu and so many more. Appearing on television, radio and records worldwide.
Now in 2018 Steve and Patty have got back together to bring back the fabulous sound of The Settlers, with Dave Smith on Guitar/Vocals, and Tony Harris on Bass/banjo/guitar, to the delight of Settlers fans old and new.
