I have been working on, and updating for years, (mentioned on here before) a history of all Steeleye's performances/tours/set lists etc etc. I am finally biting the bullet and putting it out there via a new website. One day it will hopefully be a pretty complete time-line history of Steeleye Span. Formatting and adding pictures etc is all still WIP. If anyone has additional info / corrections then I would love to know any, a lot of the earlier years are very hard to find info for - especially the 80's!! Nothing really exists like this for Steeleye, unlike some other similar bands like Jethro Tull. It os not  a discography type website though, that has been done already. Google will not 'see' it yet so you will have to click on the link or. It's mobile friendly.

That's really good!  I found the first time I saw them - 18 November 1974, Fairfield Hall, Croydon.  I can confirm that the Mummers Play was performed at that concert.

Only managed a quick skim through so far, but already impressed.
Thank you for all your hard work.....

Well done, i'll have a closer look when I have more time. In the meantime I have three gigs I attended that you do not list : 1984 Towngate Theatre Basildon; 1985 St David's Hall Cardiff and 1986 London Festival Hall (supported by Renaissance). It's possible that I may be able to track down dates, but that will have to await the next time I make the ascent to the loft !

cheers, and brilliant, the 1980's are without doubt the hardest to find dates for , and even more so the three years you mention!! If you do find the exact dates it will be hugely helpful in identifying when the tours took place in those years!
Thanks again!

I do remember them appearing on Harry Secombe's TV show in 1984 performing Take My Heart and Hard Times Of Old England. They had Michael Chapman in the line-up, stepping in for Tim Hart, I guess.

I was pleased to see that I saw them on their first tour at Manchester University.
I also saw them when they toured Corunna, but only the last half of it. I already had tickets to see some one else at the free trade hall, ten years after keep coming to mind, but the moment it finished we can the length of Oxford rd to the Students union, and got in for free to see the end of Corunna and the subsequent encores.😀

Intriguing! I will see if I can find out anything.  Especially interesting with regards Michael Chapman playing with them, not seen a reference to that. Perfectly possible of course, 1984 was their first year back without Tim after having 1983 off.

(Michael Chapman was with Maddy and Rick near the start (not Take my heart), whilst Steeleye appear at about 23.30 'singing' hard times but with no Chapman). Quite Amusing!
And great memory, cheers!!!!
