Football, folk-rock and the 1950s are just three subjects to inspire songwriters Ken Nicol and Ashley Hutchings.

The musical duo – both former members of folk-rock greats Steeleye Span as well as many other bands and projects – will be at Clitheroe’s Grand Theatre October 10 and Edge Hill Arts Centre, Ormskirk October 11, with a show of original music written together and individually over the past four decades.

Ashley - a founder member of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and the Albion Band, and known as The Guv’nor of Folk-Rock – said: “This is the first time Ken and I have played together for three years, and we’re really looking forward to doing it again.”
