"If 45 years ago someone had predicted that a rock bass player would almost single-handedly
transform the image of Morris dance in this country and provide so many of the sparks that have
led to a tectonic shift in the way England looks at its own musical traditions, they would have been
called crazy. Call me crazy, but having known Ashley for 47 years, having been the beneficiary of
his acute ears in tipping me to the music of Nick Drake, as well as having enjoyed many collaborations
with him over the years, I have to say that nothing he accomplishes surprises me"
