The Albion Band
With a history stretching back forty years, The Albion Band has seen some of the great names in English Folk appear in its ranks, from Martin Carthy to Show of Hands' Phil Beer. Under the watchful eye of founder member Ashley Hutchings, the baton is passed on to his son Blair Dunlop. This new line-up recaptures the spirit of The Albion Band's heyday with a rockier, edgier approach to traditional English folk music.
This is the new sound of 21st century English Folk-Rock
Alongside Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention, The Albion Band is one of the 'Big Three' of English Folk Rock, fusing traditional British songs and tunes with contemporary instruments and sounds, and all formed by legendary band leader Ashley Hutchings. 2012 sees a complete reboot of The Albion Band, with the torch being passed to a newer generation of English folk talent. As ever, this band brings together some of the finest musicians and singers in the UK folk scene including Ashley's son Blair Dunlop, plus Gavin Davenport, Katriona Gilmore, Tom Wright, Tim Yates and Benjamin Trott. This new line-up recaptures the spirit of The Albion Band's heyday with a rockier, edgier approach to traditional English folk music. Taking the unique character of classic era Albion Band and fusing it with award winning song writing and a contemporary rock and indie vibe, this is the new sound of 21st century English Folk-Rock.
