PETER KNIGHT'S GIGSPANNER

Peter Knight's Gigspanner has been hailed by Songlines magazine as "another milestone in folk's rebirth of cool", but those already in the know will tell you that there is far more to Gigspanner than meets the eye. The trio is now established as a powerful presence at venues and festivals around the UK, and beyond - and rapidly gaining new fans.

A bedrock of British traditional music is to be expected from Steeleye Span's legendary fiddle player, dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the fiddle world. But, Gigspanner's musical reach flirts audaciously with Eastern European, French, Cajun, African and even Aboriginal influences.

It is no surprise that author Terry Pratchett wrote that "Peter Knight can spin the world on his Bow."
