Details

Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span, legendary 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 a reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and reassembling it in an intriguing, imaginative and beautiful way.

2016 proved to be a vintage year for the trio, with Peter receiving Fatea Magazine's ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ Award and also ‘Best Musician’ in the inaugural folking.com Awards. Peter is joined by Roger Flack on guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on percussion, both of whom are powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.

"Gigspanner has taken traditional tunes as a starting point and rearranged,
orchestrated and improvised around them to create fascinating new works. Their increasingly impressive sound is like no other" Folk Radio UK
