Gigspanner Big Band

Tickets

As a trio, Gigspanner, formed by Steeleye Span's erstwhile fiddle player Peter Knight, has built a massive reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and reassembling it into “music of intelligently crafted brilliance” (Songlines).

BBC Folk Award winners (Best Duo) Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are described by The Guardian as being “subtle, bravely original... a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma”

Their appearances together as the Gigspanner Big Band are a rare but highly sought after affair, thanks to performances of dazzling musicianship and arresting chemistry.

Unhindered by the limits of technical ability, 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 layered within a wealth of subliminal musical influences.
