Making a welcome return to the Guildhall is Peter Knight's Gigspanner.
Best known for his time with folk-rock legends Steeleye Span, Peter's trio Gigspanner blends his own open-minded approach to modern technology, with a deep understanding and love for the tradition, to bring new life to older tunes, and his own compositions, which range across folk, Celtic, traditional, rock and more modern ambient sounds.
Peter received the ‘Best Musician’ award in the inaugural folking.com Awards in 2016 and Gigspanner's 2015 album "Layers of Ages" featured on Album of the Year listings for The Telegraph, R2 magazine and BBC Radio. Peter is joined by Roger Flack on guitar and Sacha Trochet on percussion, both of whom are outstanding musicians in their own right.
