With a brand new album to mark the occasion and to share, founding member and bassist Ashley Hutchings is joined by fellow original bandmates – Fairport Convention’s own Simon Nicol on acoustic guitar and vocals, Simon Care on melodeons, and the ‘honey drenched’ divine vocals of one of the UK’s best folk singers, Kellie While.
The Albion Xmas Show is a very popular show appealing to all ages. The tour sells out all over the country for the two weeks leading up to Christmas every year. Described in the Guardian as “the perfect antidote to the corporate Christmas”. Expect an evening of traditional English Christmas music, humourous stories and beautiful, spine-tingling Christmas carols and ballads sung by Kellie.
