A great performance from Steve Ashley on Mark Radcliffe’s terrific Folk Show on BBC Radio 2 last week. You can catch the show playback by clicking here
Meanwhile back to Steve’s new album, ‘ANOTHER DAY’ which her certainly been catching attention (not least by tapping into how people are really feeling about the state of the nation) ….
“ … clever, well-crafted, heartfelt songs … the most quietly powerful album I’ve heard in a long time.” R2 Magazine
“However much you try to escape, you won’t be able to switch it off. This, truly, is a fabulous, hypnotic album.“ Folk Wales
(Many thanks to RnR Magazine and Folk Wales!)
