Steeleye Span formed in 1969, with the vision of playing folk music in a contemporary, electric band format. Their name was taken from the song Horkstow Grange.

The band's music might be described as akin to that of Fairport Convention and The Pentangle though much more electric and of Songs From The Wood era Jethro Tull though much more traditional folky with perhaps, a touch of the The Strawbs.

Through many line-up changes the band remained active through the 2010's and its best known member is lead vocalist Maddy Prior.
