Folk Rock Pioneers Steeleye Span Continue Their Fiftieth Anniversary Tour.

-

The early 1970s would prove to be the start of a vintage period for music and the beginning of an era that would change the world. For Steeleye Span – as the previous decade had drawn to a close – it would see them established as a major creative force.

By the end of 1971 they had not only released their classic debut Hark The Village Wait but two follow ups – Please To See The King and Ten Man Mop – launching one of the most enduring stories in the folk world and beyond.

Five decades on and the band, led as ever by the iconic vocals of Maddy Prior and with a six piece line-up featuring some of the most skilled musicians on the UK music scene, celebrate fifty years of these famous albums, playing key tracks from all three as well as favourites and gems from their long and glittering career.

Steeleye Span will be playing at Lavenham Church in Suffolk on Thursday 13th October – click for tickets.
