Fiddle ace brings Gigspanner to the Lichfield Guildhall

Folk and rock will fuse when leading fiddle player Peter Knight brings his latest musical project to Lichfield.



Known for his work with the likes of Steeleye Span and Feast of Fiddles, the musician’s latest work as part of trio Gigspanner will be at the Guildhall on March 26.

Chris Newcombe, spokersperson for concert organiser Lichfield Arts, said: “This trio have a growing reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene, dismantling the traditional and reassembling it in an intriguing, imaginative and beautiful way.

“Traditional music forms the bedrock of the trio’s repertoire but the approach sets it apart, leaving enough space within the arrangements to spread and stretch the music to embrace other influences in the moment.

“They have played at the Guildhall before, and proved popular, with their music being the perfect match for the grandeur and acoustics of the room.”

Tickets are available online or by calling the box office on 01543 262223.
