The group has won fans the length and breadth of the country with its folk and railway songs - performed live, of course! But you don't have to make it to the gig to hear the heritage railways' premier performers!
Members of Live Steam were in the recording studio throughout the early months of 2001, putting together a new recording - the band's first ever CD. The result - "Silver Jubilee". You can hear excerpts from three tracks on this website!
It's a departure from their previous recorded material, not just because it is in a digital format, but because it does not feature the sort of material that made Live Steam famous - "Silver Jubilee" does not include a single railway song. Instead, the CD features their interpretation of a number of folk classics - songs that members of the band love, and that appear in their live sets alongside the staple diet of railway songs.
Tracks range from traditional north west folk, through the folk styles of all corners of the British Isles, to their interpretation of a Fairport Convention classic "Crazy Man Michael".
Fans of Live Steam need not worry though - the publication of "Silver Jubilee" does not mean the door has been closed on the first 25 years: railway songs still feature very much in the band's repertoire!
"Silver Jubilee" has been performed, recorded and produced by members of Live Steam themselves. All funds raised from the sale of the CD go to the Furness Railway Trust.
