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, garnering along the way a reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and reassembling it in an intriguing, imaginative and beautiful way.

Whilst traditional music forms the bedrock of the trio's repertoire, it is the approach that sets it apart...leaving enough space within the arrangements to spread and stretch the music in the moment.
The stretching of the music to embrace other influences is what makes it appealing not only to lovers of folk music, but to anyone who has an appreciation of beautiful and inspiring music.

Peter is joined by Roger Flack on guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Percussion, both of whom are powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.
