Knight & Spiers
Saturday 15 December 2018: 8.00pm
“Knight’s playing is a revelation. A world away from folky fiddling, it’s fully informed by the classical style, yet he never loses the essential folk heart of the music, tracing a graceful line of his own making” Review of Cambridge Folk Festival’s ‘City Roots’
“John’s elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and
easy-going folk club banter is a quiet triumph!” Robin Denselow, The Guardian
On a summer’s day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene. Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe. The rest as they is history, with a show that incorporates delicate improvisation with brave, ground breaking musicianship. On this special December tour, Peter and John will be incorporating some seasonal music gathered from the English tradition and beyond.
