A unique celebration of one of britain's truly distinctive voices. In 1999 Maddy Prior marked 35 years in the business with a special series of live dates. Bringing together on one stage some of the remarkable musicians who had played alongside Maddy through the years, the concerts visited material from throughout her career, from her beginnings in the folk clubs of the late 60s, through the days of Steeleye and the Silly Sisters, to her ongoing collaboration with the Carnival Band, and her more recent Solo work. The video combines concert footage from those three nights of musical magic with an indepth interview giving the background to the concerts and the songs, which encompass narrative ballads and folk songs, medieval carols and Maddy's own songs of life love and family.
