Steve Ashley gig in Southport

Steve Ashley has long been regarded as one of British folk's finest singer-songwriters. His reputation for writing contemporary songs inspired by the English tradition was established in 1974 with his innovative debut album, Stroll On. Since then his songs have been recorded by many leading folk artists including Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs, Dave Pegg and PJ Wright, The Arizona Smoke Review, Martin and Jessica Simpson, Grace Notes, Phil Beer, Maggie Boyle and The Bushwackers.

He has also played a significant role in the development of British folk-rock, performing as a lead singer with the first Albion Country Band, then with his own Ragged Robin and various line-ups of The Steve Ashley Band. He has also performed occasionally with members of Fairport Convention.

Steve is the next guest at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. That's on Sunday 13th October at 8.00pm. On-line tickets. Thwaites real ale.

His best known song may well be Fire and Wine. Here it is in its original LP version:
