STEELEYE SPAN UK Tour Dates

Tonight’s performance is the best I’ve seen from the band in several years. Let’s hope the current line-up will be around for a while

The Stinger – Darren Johnson

Steeleye Span are fast approaching their 50th anniversary 2019, with a work rate to put many younger artists to shame.  The bands’ 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.  Dodgy Bastards saw the folk-rock pioneers continue drawing stories of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings and tormented spirit.  They once more create an inspired and dark take on the music of the British Isles.
