Peter Knight’s Gigspanner

In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, multi award winning 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.

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.

Unsurprisingly, their appeal extends beyond the boundaries of folk audiences, to embrace those who simply love and appreciate beautiful and inspiring music played with passion and skill.

Joining Peter is guitarist Roger Flack, founding member of Celtic-Rock band The Tabs, and percussionist Sacha Trochet.
