Peter Knight’s Gigspanner has been hailed by Songlines magazine as "another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool" (Andy Letcher), but those in the know will tell you that there is more to Gigspanner than meets the eye.
The music Gigspanner produces constantly confounds any attempt to label it, and it is that intriguing, indefinable ingredient that continues to inspire audiences of all leanings, bringing them back for more.
The trio is now established as a powerful presence at venues and festivals around the UK and beyond, and it is widely acknowledged that Gigspanner can't be compared to any other Band working on the music scene today. They are a genuine one-off without being in any way gimmicky.
What can be said is that a bedrock of British traditional music is to be expected from Steeleye Span’s legendary fiddle player. But, Gigspanner’s musical reach flirts audaciously with Eastern European, French, Cajun, African and even Aboriginal influences, transporting audiences on a “blistering pace of a musical world tour” (Phil Widdows, Folkcast)
It is rather appropriate then that author Terry Pratchett wrote that “Peter Knight can spin the world on his Bow”
Finding the perfect vehicle to showcase the breadth of his virtuosity, Peter’s musicianship within the context of Gigspanner is a revelation to those whose only experience of his playing has been limited to Steeleye Span.
Peter is supported by the flawless playing of Roger Flack on Guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Congas and Djembe, the musician whose presence “makes Gigspanner different” (R2 Magazine). Both have been described as "powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right" (Geoff Boudreau, Rye Arts Festival)
Gigspanner’s Debut Album ‘Lipreading the Poet’ was named by 'The Wire' as one of the best 15 Global Albums of 2009. But ditch the pigeonholes. Gigspanner's commitment to producing "music of intelligently crafted brilliance" (Songlines) has paid off in spades, and they have now earned their place on the festival and concert stages of the UK and beyond.
“Intelligent, multi-lingual music making. Gigspanner are marking out a distinctive zone of their own”
Julian Cowley, The Wire
“The Trio co-creates a depth of multi-textured melody that belies the pared-down instrumental line-up. Exceptional stuff, and not to be missed"
Noel Harvey, Acoustic Magazine
"Altogether gorgeous, music to sustain the spirit. Rarely have I heard such insistent calls for encores"
Dai Jeffries, Rock 'n Reel Magazine
“A blistering pace of a musical world Tour ...the Jimi Hendrix of the fiddle world”
Phil Widdows, Folkcast
“Great, Innovative music, encompassing a variety of influences drawn from an invaluable career. Don’t let it be history that tells you how good. Be there.”
Simon Rowan (Folk in the Barn, Canterbury, Review)
Gigspanner will be supported by our very good friend and stunning musician Marion Fleetwood
