A fantastic start to this year’s Ashbourne Festival with the original Rude Boy, Neville Staple and his Band, on what promises to be a great night of classic Ska, 2-Tone and new album favourites. Neville was one of the founder members of The Specials who had 7 consecutive UK top 10 singles between 1979 and 1981 including number one singles Too Much Too Young and Ghost Town. After The Specials split, Neville, Terry Hall and Lynval Golding went on to form the hugely successful Fun Boy Three who had 6 UK top twenty hits. Neville Staple is one of the best live performers; this is a great chance to see a legend of Ska and 2-Tone right on your doorstep.
