Peter Knight’s Gigspanner Big Band

25th Apr 2020

7.30pm


The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music. 


Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’


Beginning life as a trio - with former Steeleye Span fiddle player Knight being joined by percussionist Sacha Trochet and guitarist Roger Flack - the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin - BBC Folk Awards 'Best Duo') and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, joining the fray. 


Tickets: £21 (Ticket price includes a £1 Theatre Support Fee)


Book your tickets via the Square Chapel Box Office 01422 349422 or Website
