Gigspanner

Wotton-under-Edge

Saturday 9th November 2019

20.00 pm

In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write "Gigspanner are making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer" 5*****

Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material 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 “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).

Innovative, spellbinding, astonishing… the superlatives have come thick and fast. The trio's interpretations of traditional songs and tunes have captivated audiences and festivals and venues up and down the land. There can be no question that Peter Knight has made some of the greatest music of his life with his trio Gigspanner.

Their most recent release, ‘The Wife of Urban Law’ received several ‘Best Of’ end of year accolades, including making it on to Mojo’s ‘The 10 Best Folk Albums’ list.
