Music Sunday 7th June 7.30pm

Peter Knight’s Gigspanner. Album Launch Tour. It has been a long time in the works, but Gigspanner’s riveting new album ‘Layers of Ages’ sees the band blowing the dust from a collection of well-worn traditional music and songs to reveal authentic moments of staggering originality and great beauty. Hailed by Songlines magazine as “another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool”, Gigspanner present a carefully curated and skilfully narrated program of material that goes beyond the folk genres boundaries by a long chalk. Modern in interpretation yet classical in its virtuosity, it is music that continues to inspire audiences of all leanings, bringing them back for more. Legendary fiddle player Peter Knight (ex Steeleye Span) is joined by Roger Fleck on Guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Percussion. “Peter Knight Can Spin the World on His Bow” Sir Terry Pratchett
