With No Lights....more inside

Ashley Hutchings has done so much to preserve English folk music, dance, and traditions, and, by his work in schools, to get the next generation aware and interested in it. A founder member of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and the Albion Band, he also created and researched the Morris On project, which is helping to make more people aware and proud of a great and wonderful English song and dance tradition.

The music of Ashley Hutchings is a coming together of many types of music with one thing in common. Folk, Rock, Music Hall, the popular songs of the day (we don't mean today, by the way) and the one thing in common, is, that they are all English. It's what the composer  Ralph Vaughan Williams did all his working life, and it's what Ashley Hutchings has been doing all his working life, showing us that there is  something called English Music.
