The instantly recognisable voice of Steeleye Span, Maddy Prior began singing in her early teens and hasn’t stopped since. Forming a duo with Tim Hart in the mid-sixties, the pair were part of the debut line up of Steeleye and remained with the band until the early eighties, when Hart was forced into semi-retirement. A brief sabbatical after the well received ‘Time’ album aside, Prior has been the one of band’s constants - her voice guiding them through a variety of styles, from her beloved traditional music to rock and pop. Outside of the band, Maddy has a long history of collaborations and a successful solo career. Forming the Silly Sisters with June Tabor at the height of Steeleye’s success in the seventies, her work has included a delightful series of albums and tours with The Carnival Band, the trio Maddy & The Girls and appearances with many of the musicians who she has inspired over the years - including The Levellers, Rev Hammer and Benji Kirkpatrick - as well as hosting singing workshops at her Cumbrian home. Whatever the project, however, it is Maddy’s voice that is the clarion call. Maddy Prior has a recently teamed up with Giles and Hannah. Giles Lewin is a multi-talented instrumentalist and singer with a classical background diluted by some years in the band After Hours. He was a founder member of Bellowhead and is a stalwart of the Carnival Band, another long-time collaboration of Maddy’s. Hannah James was half of the award-winning duo Hannah James and Sam Sweeney and can currently be seen as part of the group Lady Maisery, as well as performing solo with her Jig Doll show. Hannah brings a multitude of talents to the show including singing, accordion, clog dancing and youth.
Saturday 19th March @ 8.00 pm
This is a rare opportunity to see folk ‘superstars’, more often seen from a distance in much larger venues, in the small intimate and welcoming surroundings of the Midway. This is an ambitious promotion but, as the numbers are limited, it is likely to be a sell-out. Make sure you get your tickets early - and why not book in for a top class meal before the concert?
