Profile
Fuchsia was an English prog-folk formed by songwriter Tony Durant in the early 70s. He included a string trio in the lineup, and recorded a self-titled album that went on to become a sought-after collectors' item, though it sold miserably at the time of its release. Durant was coaxed back into activity after he was contacted about reissuing the album, and has also worked with the band Me and My Kites.
