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.

Watch the original promo video for Steeleye Span’s ‘All Around My Hat’ from 1975:


    Boy & Bear’s Tim Hart will step out on his own this August and bring to life his solo record “Milling The Wind” with a bunch of shows around the nation.
