Folk Rock Pioneers Steeleye Span’s 50th Anniversary Tour
‘Space Oddity’, ‘Suspicious Minds’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Come Together’. 1969 could easily be said to be a vintage year for music, the end of a decade that changed the world and the introduction to one that would prove equally inspirational. It would also see the birth of a band that would start as an idea to electrify traditional music and would go on to become one of the most enduring stories in the folk world and beyond.
Fifty years on and Steeleye Span are set to mark this incredible milestone with a tour that will celebrate a band that are still as creative and vital now as they were all those years ago. Led as ever by the iconic Maddy Prior, the latest seven piece line-up will draw on the group’s incredible history to provide a night of favourites and surprises from down the decades.
