Ashley Hutchings, founder of Fairport Convention and other successful folk-rock bands including Steeleye Span and The Albion Band (in all its many guises and reincarnations), graced the stage of Live in the House this evening. The full to the brim audience were entertained from start to finish.
Ashley, accompanied by various musicians, performed music both old and new. The music formed the colour and light to the stories and anecdotes he told from his book “Words, Words, Words”.
The book tell the stories behind the writings, adds detail to the history of the bands he has created, and describes some of the many projects he has brought to fruition, both musically and theatrically.
