With Hannah James and Giles Lewin.

Best known as the voice of Steeleye Span, Maddy Prior is one of the most enduring, influential and respected singers in British folk music. She is still pushing at the boundaries and has a history of innovative collaborations with other musicians. Giles Lewin is a multi-talented player and singer with a classical background (The Dufay Collective) diluted by some years in the Irish band After Hours. He is a stalwart of The Carnival Band, another long-time collaboration of Maddy's, and his instruments include fiddle, cittern and bagpipes. Bringing youth, accordion playing and vigorous clog dancing to the trio is Hannah James, who also performs with Lady Maisery and with Sam Sweeney and is a past member of The DemonBarbers and  Kerfuffle.

'Superb rangeā€¦ Prior is in fine voice' The Telegraph
