Posted onPosted on 13th Aug

Folk rock legends Steeleye Span, who will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2019, are playing at the Palace Theatre, Mansfield, on Wednesday, 10th October.

They will be joined by special guest Jacqui McShee, from Pentangle.

Along with Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span are amongst the best known acts of the British folk revival and were among the most commercially successful, thanks to hit singles Gaudette and All Around My Hat.

They had four Top 40 albums and achieved a gold record with All Around My Hat.

The present Steeleye line-up includes 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 and backing vocals), Benji Kirkpatrick, whose father, John, played with the band in 1977-1978 (guitar and backing vocals), and Roger Carey (bass).

Steeleye are working on a new studio album for their 2019 50th Celebration and some of the new tracks will feature in the set list for the UK tour.
