Presented by Saffron Hall

Tickets from £24

Price includes a commission of £1.00

Together for fifty-five years now, Steeleye Span changed the face of folk music forever by taking it into the world of gold discs and international tours. Their new album, The Green Man Collection, brings together tracks from their recent releases with new versions of three classics including a reworking of ‘Hard Times’, featuring Status Quo’s Francis Rossi, a cover of Elvis Costello’s ‘Shipbuilding’ and the title track, a previously lost Bob Johnson song from the 1980s.

The band will undertake a full UK tour in support, their first live dates of the year, where they will be joined by new violinist Athena Octavia. As ever – and with such a rich history to choose from – the night will offer a selection of songs from across the years and firm fan favourites.
