Ashley Hutchings

Well, caught out again........What can we say? This all started when a couple of pages on our original
Fairport Convention website, started to get a little bit out of hand......."I'll say they did".....Oh, hush!..Anyway, Those pages?.. You may well ask...... Two pages concerning the illustrious Ashley Hutchings, are the ones in question......So what to do, what to do? Well the only answer that appeared to make any sense at all, was to dedicate a small website to, and about, the aforementioned Mr Hutchings; just a few pages, you understand, to show the wide spread influence that A.H has had on the modern British Folk Revival. We hope that you'll enjoy what you see and hear, on these pages and through all the links, and will be encouraged to seek the music and albums that are mentioned herein.........and you can't say fairer than that.
