The legendary folk singer and musician Maddy Prior will kick off her 2016 UK tour at Malton’s Milton Rooms on Wednesday March 16.

Maddy rose from the folk circuit to international success as the lead singer of Steeleye Span with their unique fusion of folk and rock in the seventies. In her varied career since then she has

become one of the most enduring, influential and respected artists in British music.

“This is a big coup for Malton to attract such an artist as Maddy and we are sure it will be a great night out for all her fans,” said Brenda Stott, a programme organiser at the Milton Rooms.

Maddy has continued to explore different musical avenues over the years both as a soloist and band member. Together with new musical partners Giles Lewin (who plays with Maddy in the Carnival Band) and young accordion player Hannah James, Maddy will be performing music from across the British Isles and as far away as Eastern Europe all delivered in her own unique style.

Tickets are now on sale at the Milton Rooms box office or by telephone 01653 696240, priced £16 (£12 concessions).
