(PAL DVD will only work in U.S. if you have a region free player) For any artist to discover new inspiration after many years is a huge challenge yet this is just what Steeleye Span achieved with Wintersmith, the 22nd studio album in a remarkable career. Born from their friendship with author Terry Pratchett, their musical interpretation of his novel provided them with a gateway to a magical world, allowing the band to explore familiar themes in the company of a new set of characters - all of whom allow Steeleye to delve into the darker side of their music.
Received warmly by both critics and audience - Wintersmith saw Steeleye return to the UK album charts - the resulting concert tour was a celebration of both the past and the present. With violinist Peter Knight making his farewell, these live shows marked a major chapter in the band's history. Filmed in Salisbury, the Wintersmith DVD captures all the magic - especially fitting as Pratchett was in the audience and joined them on stage. This is the perfect record of a special meeting of minds. Total time is 83 minutes.
