Details

Steeleye Span are fast approaching their 50th anniversary 2019, with a work rate to put many younger artists to shame. The bands’ eighth album in twelve years - 2016's Dodgy Bastards - saw them return to the folk tales and characters that have always been at the heart of the Steeleye sound. Dodgy Bastards saw the folk-rock pioneers continue drawing stories of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings and tormented spirit. They once more create an inspired and dark take on the music of the British Isles. 

Steeleye Span are an English Folk Rock band formed in 1969. Still active today, along with Fairport Convention they are amongst the best known acts of the British Folk Revival and were among the most commercially successful, thanks to their hit singles Gaudette" and "All Around My Hat". They had four Top 40 albums and achieved a certified gold record with sales of "All Around My Hat".

The present Steeleye line-up is: The Legendary Maddy Prior (vocals), with long term member Liam Genockey (drums), Julian Littman,(guitar/keyboards and vocals) Andrew Sinclair (guitar), Jesse Mae Smart (violin anc backing vocals), Benji Kirkpatrick (guitar and backing vocals),(whose father John Kirkpatrick played with the band in 1977-1978) and Roger Carey (bass)
