Peter Knight with two of his hugely talented fellow musicians, Roger Flack and Vincent Salzfaas appearing under the name "Gigspanner". Tickets are £8 which for an act of this outstanding quality is a piffling amount. And it's right on our own doorstep.
For anyone not in the know - Peter Knight is the long time fiddle player with Steeleye Span, but he also does a great deal of solo and other band work. You'll rarely get an opportunity to see a more accomplished set of musicians performing in the Rame Peninsula.
I have no real idea exactly what Gigspanner are going to play, but I believe their style is based around traditional English folk infused with African rhythms. I've already organised tickets for quite a few of our mates and muckers (some of whom still owe me for them); anyone else can easily get hold of tickets by following the link here:
There's a £1.50 postage fee to add to any order, but it's still outstanding value for what I'm sure will be an exceptional evening's entertainment.
You can have a smile at Mr Knight's younger years on youtube as he performs with Steeleye Span on Crackerjack (from 1976). He's on the extreme left in the video demonstrating a terrific ability in shifting his weight from one foot to the other whilst Maddy Prior mimes gamely to "All Around My Hat":
Enjoy - and do get yourself a ticket!
