The Albion Band Tickets

The Albion Band are a folk band founded by the former member of Fairport Convention, Ashley Hutchings.

It is possible to see two phases in the career of the band however, in the first category from 1971 to 1979 there are No Roses, Morris On, Battle of the Field, The Compleat Dancing Master, Son of Morris On, Kickin’ up the Sawdust, The Prospect Before Us, and Rise Up Like the Sun, Lark Rise to Candleford: a Country Tapestry.

And of these, No Roses, Battle of the Field and Lark Rise are those where everything best comes together, as portraits of a vanished world, specifically English, without the Irish and Scots elements that Fairport cheerfully incorporated but with elements of the modern world too in the electric guitars and fiddle. The Prospect Before Us, and Rise Up Like the Sun are perhaps however the most accomplished as folk rock.
