Peter Knight's Gigspanner Big Band

This exciting concert featuring several of the biggest names on the folk-roots scene, combines a deep knowledge of roots traditions with a ceaselessly boundary pushing approach.
The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music. Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those seeking something more experimental, garnering praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’.

Formed by legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight, the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (BBC Folk Awards for Best Duo) and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire John Spiers.

As collaborations go, it doesn't get much more mouth-watering than this.

Characterised by riotous inventiveness, technically gifted individual playing and subtle collaborative interaction, this is a coming together of several of the biggest names on the folk-roots scene.
