An intimate evening with world-renowned folk songwriter Steve Ashley

Legendary folk-rock singer-songwriter Steve Ashley returns to Bury on Friday 3 October at 8pm for an intimate solo performance.

 

.

After 40 years in the business and with a string of highly-acclaimed solo albums to his name, Steve Ashley’s internationally renowned songs have won the respect of critics and inspired the likes of Fairport Convention, Anne Briggs, Wizz Jones, Phil Beer, Martin Simpson, The Bushwackers, Grace Notes and St Agnes Fountain to perform them.

 

His award-winning 1974 debut album, Stroll On, is now widely regarded as a folk-rock classic and his last album, Time and Tide, was described by fROOTS as “a modern day masterpiece”. The prolific rock author, Dave Thompson, has now published the first musical biography of Steve’s career: “Fire and Wine – An Armchair guide to Steve Ashley”, featuring contributions from many leading names in folk rock.

 

Tickets for the event are £10, or £8 for concessions. For more information or to book phone Box Office on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
