DID you miss out on tickets for Steeleye Span? Fear not...

In the wake of his departure from 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.

The trio will be performing live on Wednesday, November 6 at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan (7.30pm).

Described by Folk Radio UK 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.

Unsurprisingly, their appeal extends beyond the boundaries of folk audiences, to embrace those who simply love and appreciate beautiful and inspiring music played with passion and skill.

Joining Peter is guitarist Roger Flack, founding member of Celtic-Rock band The Tabs, and percussionist Sacha Trochet.

"Many people as they trickled out into the night said that this was one of the best gigs they'd ever been to. I'd agree with that. If you get a quarter of a chance to see them, go - there were people there last night who had travelled many miles to be there. It was well worth every mile," says broadcaster and musician Mike Harding.

"A glorious musical tour de force...simply exquisite,” saysSpiral Earth

"Gigspanner are reshaping tradition in fascinating ways," writes fRoots Magazine, while Maverick Magazine says: “Gigspanner are making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer.

"Gigspanner are a band who get better with every outing, studio or live, and this album cements their standing as one of the most interesting, vital and exciting outfits on the scene. Outstanding."
