The Arts Centre

Tickets £12.00 / £10.00 concessions.

Having now clocked up almost 40 years with Steeleye Span, fiddle player Peter Knight’s name and reputation are known to most people with an interest in traditional music. Now with his own trio Gigspanner, Peter is joined by guitarist Roger Flack and Afro-Percussionist Vincent Salzfaas. Together they explore traditional music and its related themes with energy, brilliance and spontaneity. Gigspanner are thrilling audiences and receiving ecstatic reviews, and we urge you not to miss out on what promises to be a truly memorable evening.

 “musician and author Andy Letcher observed, “with Gigspanner, Peter Knight has put together a tight trio with which to let his playing fly…. stepping lightly through folk, classical, baroque and jazz, Gigspanner produce music of intelligently crafted brilliance” (Songlines Magazine)”.

                      With support artistes, folk duo, Chris and Siobhan Nelson
