Ian 'Big E' Taylor


Ian Taylor has been familiar with Tyldesley all his life, as his Dad grew up here as a boy.

From 1987 to 2017 he was a dedicated regular at Tyldesley Little Theatre but has since retired from the stage to concentrate on writing non-fiction and fiction, usually horror and fantasy themed. He has had a love of music since he was in short pants, and was especially inspired by the 2-Tone Ska explosion and Mod revival that occurred when he was just 9 years old.

He looks forward to sharing his formative musical inspirations and taking his listeners on a journey that explores every possible offshoot and tangent of many iconic artists and songs.
