Offering some foot-tapping folk

Worcester Editorial 12th Nov, 2019   0

BRITISH folk stars Gigspanner Big Band will take to the stage at Huntingdon Hall for an evening of music from a host of influential musicians, all with their own unique identity.

Formed by fiddle player and ex-Steeleye Span Peter Knight, Gigspanner has established a reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene

BBC Folk Award winners for best duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin join Gigspanner on this tour along with John Spiers, co-founder of Bellowhead and one half of the magical duo Spiers and Boden and most recently, Knight and Spiers.

Their appearances together with Roger Flack on guitar and Sacha Trochet on hand percussion are a rare but highly sought after affair thanks to performances of dazzling musicianship and on stage chemistry.

Gigspanner will be on stage from 7.30pm next Thursday (November 21).
