Way back in the 1970’s, when they were new, I discovered a British band called Steeleye Span. They play and sing medieval and Renaissance English folk songs, with modern rock instrumentation. Sounds weird, but they were, and are, simply wonderful. I still own a bunch of vinyl albums from their early years, and we play them sometimes on our turntable. But a couple of weeks ago, on Ricochet, a member posted a link to a 1975 promo video they did, singing their song “All Around My Hat”. I could not remember ever hearing that song, and it occurred to me that I had never seen them! I bookmarked that video, and I play it at least once a day now. Their lead singer, Maddy Prior, has a gorgeous voice, and she really does a great job with all their lyrics. Take a gander at this:
I guarantee you’ll love them.
