Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are widely acknowledged as the finest acoustic roots duo in England. Knightley, who writes most of their inspired material and Beer, a dazzling multi instrumentalist, have built up a huge following which has seen them sell out the Albert Hall four times and headline at major festivals from Glastonbury to WOMAD.
Voted Best Duo in the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ( as well as clinching Best Original Song for Knightley's acclaimed Arrogance Ignorance and Greed) the jury is still out on just what kind of music they play. A genre defying mix of rock, roots, blues, country, trad, and often influenced by the music of other countries, it is played out on an array of instruments from slide guitar to fiddle, mandolin to South American cuatro. 'Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act' (The Independent).

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.
