Steeleye Span is a British folk rock band that was formed in 1969 by bassist Ashley Hutchings, who left Fairport Convention to pursue a more traditional direction. The band has been through many personnel changes, but the only constant member is singer Maddy Prior, who has a distinctive voice and a knack for interpreting old songs in a modern way. Steeleye Span is known for its fusion of electric instruments and folk melodies, as well as its use of medieval and Renaissance themes. The band has released 27 studio albums from 1970 to 2007, covering a wide range of styles and influences.
