Peter Knight's 'Gigspanner' -

<B>Peter Knight's <I>'Gigspanner'</I></B>

Date: Sunday 14th November 2021
Time: 19:30

Peter Knight’s Gigspanner are :

Peter Knight violin,
Roger Flacon guitar and
Sacha Trocheon drums

As expected, British traditional music forms the bedrock of the Trio's repertoire, but the approach is what sets it apart...leaving enough room within the arrangements to spread and stretch the music in the moment.

In a time where the element of improvisation is gaining traction in the folk-roots world, it is worth noting that Gigspanner has always used it as a rich seam to be mined, and to quote Peter's own words "there is nothing more exciting than finding yourself lost in a new layer of inspiring and spontaneous music".

2019 marked the tenth anniversary year of the release of Gigspanner’s debut album, Lipreading the Poet, an album which made it onto The Wire’s "Top Ten Global Albums" list for 2019.

With its strapline ‘Adventures in Modern Music’, it seems wholly appropriate for a band that “has taken traditional tunes as a starting point and rearranged, orchestrated and improvised around them to create fascinating new works, leaving no doubt that Gigspanner’s increasingly impressive sound is like no other" Folk Radio UK
