    UTEA: GIGSPANNER : 8pm, Saturday 9th Nov

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Peter Knight's Gigspanner were amazing... I can only think of a handful of folk musicians world-wide that have the kind of relationship with their instrument that Peter Knight has: Martin Hayes, Enda Scahill, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker, Martin Simpson.

    Many people as they trickled out into the night said that this was one of the best gigs they'd ever been to. I'd agree with that. If you get a quarter of a chance to see them, go - there were people there last night who had travelled many miles to be there. It was well worth every mile"

    Mike Harding: Broadcaster/Musician/Writer

    In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write "Gigspanner are making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer" 5*****

    Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).

    Innovative, spellbinding, astonishing… the superlatives have come thick and fast. The trio's interpretations of traditional songs and tunes have captivated audiences and festivals and venues up and down the land. There can be no question that Peter Knight has made some of the greatest music of his life with his trio Gigspanner.

    Their most recent release, ‘The Wife of Urban Law’ received several ‘Best Of’ end of year accolades, including making it on to Mojo’s ‘The 10 Best Folk Albums’ list.

    Press Quotes…

    "Gigspanner has taken traditional tunes as a starting point and rearranged,
    orchestrated and improvised around them to create fascinating new works.
    Their increasingly impressive sound is like no other" Folk Radio UK

    "With his trio, Peter Knight breaks new ground and is second to absolutely nobody. Groundbreaking, engaging, frequently astonishing, Gigspanner deliver a simply superb set" 5***** Maverick Magazine

    "Gigspanner are reshaping tradition in fascinating ways" fRoots Magazine

    “A glorious musical tour de force...simply exquisite” 4**** Spiral Earth

    “Gigspanner work together in musical genius" EFDSS Magazine
