Peter Knight’s Gigspanner in Concert
Thursday 23rd March
Performance starts 8.00pm
“Many people said that this was one of the best gigs they’d ever been to. I’d agree with that. If you get a quarter of a chance to see them, go” Mike Harding.
Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span at the end of 2013, fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process has established their reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene, garnering along the way a reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and reassembling it in an entirely original, imaginative and beautiful way.
Unhindered by the limits of technical ability, they take self-penned along with music rooted in the British Isles and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements layered in a wealth of subliminal musical influences “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator”
What makes Gigspanner unique is the variety of musical colours on their palette. What makes them brilliant is how they blend them without ever muddying the landscape ~ Spiral Earth
