Maddy Prior

Tuesday 1st May 2018 - Starts 8pm



We confirm this event is on the 1st May (not the 4th May as some of the flyers suggest!) Thanks for bearing with us!

Over the course of her remarkable career, Maddy Prior has worked with some of the most exceptional musicians in the world – both within Steeleye Span and beyond. For this performance Maddy will be joined by accordion player, singer and clog dancer Hannah James and multi-instrumentalist Giles Lewin (Bellowhead / Carnival Band), forming a trio that explores the music of the British Isles and Eastern Europe. Her debut album 3 For Joy took fourteenth century poems, tales of the industrial revolution from Ulster and music from the Southern Baptist Church tradition. Her latest Shortwinger is themed on the wild field, mainly concerned with birds, hares and their place in folk mythology. The trio will be performing songs from both albums as well as highlights from Maddy’s solo and band career – all presented in a daring acoustic style that enhances one of the finest voices this country has ever produced.
