Event details

As a trio, Gigspanner, formed by multi-award winning fiddle player Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span), has established a reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene.

Periodically, the pairing of two acts, each with their own unique identity, produces an electrifying force that is even greater than the impressive sum of its parts.

BBC Folk Award winners (Best Duo) Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are described by The Guardian as being "Subtle, bravely original...a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma."

Taking self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, their appearances together as the Gigspanner Big Band are a rare, but highly sought after affair, thanks to performances of dazzling musicianship and arresting on-stage chemistry.

"They don't play together very often, but when they do it's spectacular" - R2 Magazine
