'Es At It Again!

Ashley Hutchings' Rainbow Chasers

He's known as the Father of British Folk-Rock, and sometimes The Guv’nor, and at others, The Alchemist of Electric Morris,but running parallel with these existences, for over twenty or more years, has been a successful and inventive life as songwriter, poet, music director at the National Theatre and compiler of many fascinating albums of words and music on various themes . Well, if you've gotten this far into the website, you'll have gotten the picture. Ashley's back, well back with a new band. Ashley Hutchings' Rainbow Chasers.They'll be performing and have recorded, we might add, some of the most interesting, sensitive and thought-provoking material that he has been associated with.  Joining him are a group of young, talented singers and musicians – all of whom have yet to make a name in the world of music.
