2023 News / gigs

After a busy 2022 it looks like 2023 will be a quiet year with no tours currently expected/planned. Hopefully there will be some festival appearances to go with the 'Prog 12' concert below. A new album is 'overdue' but I suspect they will wait for 2024, the 55th Anniversary year. 

9-12th Nov 2023: HRH Prog 12 Festival. Great Yarmouth

New & Recent Releases

New CD- Hark! The Village Wait Live

Now available from Park Records this brilliant new Live CD from the current line up was recorded in Autumn 2017. The band ran through Steeleye's debut album in the first half of the concert. The three bonus tracks were from the second set. London does not feature on the 50th CD/DVD whilst Marrowbones and When I was on Horseback only feature on the bonus DVD 

Maddy says in the liner notes: "50 years later ..we re-imagined the songs for a completely line up and time..we re appraised the songs and gave ourselves the freedom to develop them to match our experiences and choices today...this live version brings a different energy".
