Event details: For nearly 40 years Steve Ashley's songs have won the respect of critics and fellow-performers alike with cover versions by Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs, Dave Pegg and PJ Wright, Martin and Jessica Simpson, Maggie Boyle, Phil Beer, Grace Notes, The Arizonas and The Bushwackers. His debut album ‘Stroll On' is a folk-rock classic and his latest for Topic, ‘Time and Tide' was described by fROOTS as ‘a modern day masterpiece'. Steve also has what New York's Variety magazine described as ‘one of the funniest of dry stage raps'. Don‘t miss this rare treat.

Support Al Lindsay
With a playing style strongly reminiscent of John Martyns ‘Solid Air' days and a writing style heavily influenced by the same, with generous helpings of Todd Rundgren, Joni Mitchell, World Party and Nick Drake, Al's true calling has always been the live performance of his original blues and folk tinged set.
