Regex string validation question

Hi,
I am a newbie with Regex.  Could you please come up with an expresion that could be used to validate that an input string only contains the characters:  a-z, A-Z, space, or "-" (hyphen).

I need to use this to validate the input string from a form.

Thanks in advance,
hefterr
