Legend of the folk world set to play finest at Feckenham gig

Redditch Editorial 4th Nov, 2023   0

THE legendary Ashley Hutchings, a founder member of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band – is to play Feckenham Village Hall next Saturday (November 11).

Hutchings is generally regarded as the Godfather of British Folk-Rock and now Ashley has a brand-new show called ‘100 Not Out’ which presents a musical review of his incredible career and celebrates and draws heavily from his 100th album release, ‘More Songs from The Shows’ (2022).

Throughout his nearly 60-year musical career, Ashley has worked with more great female singers than anyone else.

Now he will be joined once again by one of the country’s finest singers and accompanists, Becky Mills, on vocals and guitar.

With Ashley on vocals and bass, together they will present a very special words and music performance, ‘100 Not Out’, including many of Ashley’s favourite songs from his repertoire, ranging from ‘Crazy Man Michael’ to ‘Bird on a Wire’, plus a number from the songbook of Bob Dylan, with whom Ashley has formed a close personal friendship.

100 Not Out has been brought to Redditch’s rural outpost by Live and Local – the county’s performing arts scheme – ‘bringing Live Arts to YOUR Doorstep’.




The performance is sponsored by Arts Council England, Worcestershire County Council and Redditch Borough Council.

Tickets and details are through www.feckhall.org or by phone on 0333 666 3366
