Tim and Maddy once asked me to sing a song I had sung earlier in the evening, instead of their doing the encore they were being asked for.

Very, very sad, another of my great mentors/inspirations and folk music innovators bites the dust! Only the other evening we were enjoying a performance by a great legacy of Tim's: 'Steeleye Span'- still a fantastic band. It was the final gig of the tour and was just sublime. They spoke of Tim's illness and had been taking collections and dedicating a raffle in his name. But I had no idea he was so close to death's door. Tim was surely one of Folk Music's Blueprints (or originals)and his influence is all over just about everything that has happened in the traditional folk world since. R.I.P. Tim

Steeleye Span Founder Tim Hart Dead From Lung Cancer

by Paul Cashmere - December 27 2009

Steeleye Span founder Tim Hart has died at the age of 61 from lung cancer.

Hart was diagnosed 12 months ago in December 2008 and told the cancer was inoperable.

Tim Hart formed his first band Rattfinks while he was still at St Albans High School. The school also generated another famous band, The Zombies.

In 1970, Hart formed Steeleye Span with Maddy Prior. The group regularly toured the United States and Australia.

Hart's first solo album came in 1979. Prior contributed vocals to the record.

In 1988, Hart's health declined and he gave up music to become a writer and photographer.

He was persuaded to perform again in 1995 for the charity War Child. He was part of a five hour performance that featured almost every previous member of Steeleye Span.

In 2008, he once again reunited with Prior for a one-off performance for BBC's Electric Proms.

Tim Hart died in the early morning of December 24, 2009.

like everyone - this has come as a shock - I remember Tim as a teenage floor singer at the St Albans club - then as a duo with Maddy - they dropped into our singaround club at Croxley Green in 67 - and I also remember a weekend at Pendley Manor when we all performed in Maria Marten - Tim amd Maddy sang'If I were a Carpenter'
in the corridor.
An underrated contributor to the 60s folk revival ( by some )
I think of him now as a pioneer and with hindsight as important as many of the bigger names of the 60s-70s

Very sad! Below The Salt was my intro to the rock generation's participation in the British folk music revival, and still is a treasured album.

I've just listened to Tim and Maddy singing 'The Gardener'. His death is sad, but with songs like that, recorded, who will ever forget him

Lovely man - talented, generous, taught me the basics of the dulcimer. May he come to his place in peace. From yet another 48-er.

Oh, V.B. What a gift! I take it you mean the fretted dulcimer? I think that is what Tim played, but I may be mistaken.

So very sorry to hear of Tim's passing. My condolences to his family and I'm glad that they have been able to see how we all felt about him here.

Steeleye were my introduction to folk as with so many others. My older brother played Steeleye LP's incessantly and I listened avidly through the bedroom wall.

Thanks Tim and rest easy.

It's very telling, and angering, that nothing about his death has appeared on the BBC News website

It kind of has....

Sally and Chris, let me add my condolences to your family and the world for such a great loss. I am another one whose whole taste in English folk was formed by Tim, Maddie and the rest of Steeleye Span. Thank you for taking the time to visit this site during such a difficult time.

The music lives on.

Ed, yes I noticed the BBC coverage. It's still pretty unimpressive that it took then several days.

It's the BBC's shortest staffed week of the year. Cut them a bit of slack!

Or maybe you should refuse to pay your licence fee?

I don't want to swerve this thread into media-related bickering, but the reason I made the point was that a musician of such significance in other musical genres would probably not have had to wait so long. That's all.

His was one of the first voices I heard when I moved to England in 1972. I loved it then and I still do. A light has gone out, but the sound lives on. R.I.P.

i remember john peel was a great fan of tim and maddy and i went out and bought their first album after hearing a session on a little transistor radio. saw him many times over the years and he was one of the pioneers along with simon nichol on the appalachian dulcimer,both of them using electric versions.
lovely to see that he enjoyed his years in la gomera and found happiness and success as a writer and photographer and that his musical talent is so celebrated and lives on in his grandson.

Somehow I have missed this thread until now.
I wish it was something I was not reading now.
Always one of of my favourites, I have Folk Songs of Olde England 1 and 2 and Summer Solstice on both Vinyl and CD, plus all the early Steeleye albumns.
My condolences to his family and friends, another great one singing in the Heavenly Choir..

Park Records have just reissued Tim Hart's two nursery rhyme LPs on a double CD to help the next generation discover and remember this wonderful music.

I understand that the reissue was originally planned to raise funds for Tim's medical bills but sadly was too late for that.
