Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span at the end of 2013, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process has firmly established their burgeoning reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene with influences from across the world.
As expected, British traditional music forms the bedrock of the trio's repertoire, but the approach is what sets it apart...leaving enough room with the arrangements to spread and stretch the music in the moment. Within Gigspanner, Peter’s musicianship is further enhanced by the flawless playing of Roger Flack on Guitar and Sacha Trochet on hand drums and percussion.
