Since departing Steeleye Span, multi award winning 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.
Described 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!
Their November 2017 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 of 2017 list.
