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’, still regarded as a folk-rock classic. Since then his songs have been recorded by many leading folk artists including Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs and Wizz Jones, O'Hooley & Tidow, Phil Beer and Maggie Boyle.
Steve has played a significant role in the development of British folk-rock, performing as lead singer with the first Albion Country Band, then with Ragged Robin and various line-ups of The Steve Ashley Band.
He has released 12 albums of original songs, melding tradition with innovation and delivering intelligent and inspired English poetry, within distinctive original melodies.His latest album, ‘One More Thing’ has received five-star reviews and his album, ‘This Little Game’ featured in lists of The Best Folk Albums of 2015.
If you like songs that are edgy, challenging and compassionate - and sometimes very funny - then see him in live performance.
