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.

They are playing a lot of material from “Below the Salt” and Parcel of Rogues. 50 years on. They are looking at the early material of the Chrysalis albums of the 70’s, revisiting them and rethinking them.

Pioneers of folk-rock, Steeleye Span changed the face of folk music forever, taking it out of small clubs and into the world of gold discs and international tours. Five decades on and the band, led as ever by the iconic vocals of Maddy Prior and a 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.
