Folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span are not just a legendary name in British music but also a link to the classic days of rock and folk music, and tonight they present their new live show.
Maddy Prior – the voice of the band – leads a line-up featuring faces old and new. 2014 saw Steeleye Span emerging on new exciting chapter: with the departure of fiddle player and long-standing member Peter Knight the band introduced Jessie May Smart, a young, vibrant talent.
2014 also saw the release of a deluxe version of their album Wintersmith in collaboration with Sir Terry Pratchett with an extra CD including four new studio tracks – a record that delighted long-time fans, introduced them to a new audience and broke new creative ground.
Steeleye look forward to continuing this story throughout 2015, performing these new gems, plus new single Somewhere Along the Road (taken from their new album Catch Up – The Essential Steeleye Span), alongside the classics that have made them one of the most successful British folk-rock bands ever.
