Recently expanded to a six piece - with long term members Maddy Prior, Peter Knight, Rick Kemp and Liam Genocky joined by Pete Zorn and Julian Littman - Steeleye are sounding more powerful than ever and equally inspired by their choice of source material. This time they have looked to the work of famous British author, Terry Pratchett. Renowned for his series of Discworld novels Terry is a long-standing fan of the band, even booking them to play at his sixtieth birthday party. Now the two have collaborated on a brand new project, a record based on Pratchett%uFFFDs Wintersmith novel. The subject matter is completely appropriate for Steeleye, a tale of ancient rituals and secret folk dances that perfectly complements their previous work whilst taking it in new directions. Such a record needed a special touch to do it justice and the band found just this in the guise of Chris Tsangarides. A producer with a CV that includes the likes of Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and Gary Moore as well as Tom Jones, New Model Army and Depeche Mode, Chris has brought his special talents to mixing the album - harking back to their classic sound and picking up where recent releases They Called Her Babylon and Bloody Men left off. With special guest appearances from Northumbrian piper Kathryn Tickell, Bellowhead's John Spiers and Pratchett himself providing spoken word Wintersmith - their fifth long player in less than a decade - is an album to delight long term fans and reinforce Steeleye Span's status as legends of British music
