THIS WEEK...

we welcome    Steve Ashley     as our guest!!

Steve Ashley has long been regarded as one of British folk's finest singer-songwriters.
His reputation for writing contemporary songs inspired by the English Tradition was established in 1974 with his innovative debut album, Stroll On.
Since then his songs have been recorded by many leading folk artists including Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs, Ralph McTell and Wizz Jones, O'Hooley & Tidow, Dave Pegg and PJ Wright,
The Arizona Smoke Review, Martin and Jessica Simpson, Grace Notes, Phil Beer, Maggie Boyle, The Bushwackers, The Owl Service, Sproatly Smith and Hannah Sanders and Liz Simmons.

Steve has played a significant role in the development of British folk-rock, performing as a lead singer with the first Albion Country Band, then with his own Ragged Robin
plus various line-ups of The Steve Ashley Band. He has also performed occasionally with members of Fairport Convention!

"... a modern-day masterpiece"    -    David Kidman, fROOTS 2007

"... sturdy melodies are matched with a rare blend of emotion and anger. Ashley may not be prolific but his songs are worth the wait."    -    Robin Denselow, The Guardian 2007
