Peter Knight’s Gigspanner return for another fundraising concert to St. Batholomew’s Church Hall, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2DT on 18 November.
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 pushing at the boundaries, expanding the possibilities and in the process making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer.”
They have been described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, and by Songlines as “another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool”.
Taking self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, Gigspanner produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” Spiral Earth.
Tickets (£18) can be reserved by contacting John via email email@example.com or by phone at 07872-580450. Tickets can also be bought online – all profits from the gig will go to the refurbishment project at St Batholomew’s Church Hall.
