Steeleye Span has been one of the most influential names in British roots music. Members have come and gone over the years, but Steeleye has always remained at the forefront of the genre they helped to define, and, 49 years later the band has become an institution in British music.

Even with a career that has brought an incredible, twenty-two studio albums, their history still includes a number of records that stand out as landmarks. 1974's Now We Are Six was one such moment, an album that saw the band expand both their line up to a six piece and with it their sound to explore even further their own unique blend of rock and folk music. A critical and commercial success, the record would provide a home to a number of band classics down the years, including the famous 'Thomas The Rhymer'.

With their fiftieth anniversary fast approaching and a work rate to put many younger artists to shame, the band's eighth album in twelve years 2016's Dodgy Bastards saw them return to the folk tales and characters that have always been at the heart of the Steeleye sound with a record that saw the folk rock pioneers continue to draw on stories of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings and tormented spirits to once more create an inspired and dark take on the music of the British Isles.

When you come to a Steeleye Span show you can expect to hear many of the familiar classics next to gems both old and new, all delivered with a burning passion and unrivalled experience.
