Knight and Spiers
December 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm| £16
A welcome return for the inspiring duo that is Peter Knight and John Spiers.
Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span pairs up with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, now part of the Gigspanner Big Band.
The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.
These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.
This very special concert will feature lesser known carols, tunes and wassails from the English tradition and beyond.
“There can be no doubting that both performers are amongst the most, if not the most, talented of their peers.” Fatea Magazine
