Peter Knight’s Gigspanner

Since leaving folk-rockers Steeleye Span, legendary fiddler Peter Knight has focussed on Gigspanner, where his playing is complimented by the flawless guitar work of Roger Flack and the hand drums and percussion of Sacha Trochet. The trio has established a burgeoning reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene. British folk music forms the bedrock of their repertoire, but their arrangements stretch the envelope and bring in subliminal, multicultural influences from French, Cajun, Cuban, East European and other traditions. “Spellbinding” “sublime” “blown away” “inspired” and “magical” are words which occur over and over in reviews.
