Hi there,

Mainly due to the degree of interest shown via this Forum in Steeleye Span's inaugural Festival 'Spanfest', we have been offered our own 'arena' on the Talkawhile site.  It will be good to be part of such a vibrant and lively Forum, and hope that over the coming Months and Years our projects (both Steeleye and non-Steeleye related) will give rise to some stimulating exchanges! I shall follow them all with interest  Smiley

So, thanks to Colin and the rest of the Team for the invitation, and special thanks to all those whose many and varied comments surrounding 'Spanfest' opened this window of opportunity.......

Best Wishes,

Peter.

...something else for me to get addicted to.   Roll Eyes

I'm giving this new Steeleye bit a good plug amongst my fellow devotees of Maddy's courses at Stones Barn, so hopefully a few more new faces will find their way over here and join us.

Good to see you here, Peter.  Looking forward to seeing you here when you drop by.  Smiley

Peter, can I ask a quick question. I read somewhere that around 75/76, Steeleye, or at least some of Steeleye, were in fact the Wombles, in that you dressed up as them on TOTP. Can you clarify this, as it has been bugging me for a while. Cheers  Smiley

Peter has agreed in principle to guest in Talk Awhile - it might be an idea to save questions until then  Cheesy

Peter has confimed in the past that he was indeed dressed up as a Womble on TOTP!

Hi Ollie!

As Chris has already mentioned, it is true that in the 'All Around Mike Batt' days Peter did dress up as a Womble.

I have just asked Peter which one, but he can't remember although he thinks that it was a 'bloke' Womble  Smiley.......possibly Uncle Bulgaria. Rick and Nigel were also recruited and possibly Bob, although Peter is not 100% sure about this.

It was just a one-off appearance for TOTP.

All the best,

Deborah.

I'd just like to say I didn't like the Wombles before but now I know they are really just an offshoot of Steeleye, I'm looking forward to a Wombling Merry Gaudete

They wern't the originals though. It is a well known fact that Chris Spedding was the Wombles first guitarist.
