Folk rock aces at city venue

Folk-rock pioneers, pop stars and an inspiration to generations, Steeleye Span are coming to Derby’s Assembly Rooms for a concert on March 16, from 7.30pm.

With a career that has taken in an astounding six decades, Steeleye Span is not just a legendary name in British music but also a link to the classic days of rock and folk music.

Contemporaries of the likes of Led Zeppelin and Fairport Convention, they have gone on to change the face of folk music forever, taking it from small clubs and festivals into the world of chart topping albums and international tours.

Now, having established themselves live over the last two years as a six-piece, Steeleye Span approach this year’s tour with their usual vigour and the luxury of 20 albums’ worth of material to chose from. Expect

to hear many of the familiar classics next to gems old and new, all delivered with a burning passion and unrivalled experience.

Tickets cost £18.50. Call the box office on 01332 255800.
