PETER Knight, previously from Steeleye Span, has now turned his attention to Gigspanner, who are on tour from April 13.

This talented folk rock band are coming to the David Hall in South Petherton on May 3.

Thanks to multi award winning fiddle player Peter Knight, Gigspanner has a reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene.

Sir Terry Pratchett said: “Peter Knight can spin the world on his Bow, and what an intriguing and inspirational world it is. Peter, Roger Flack (Guitar) and Sacha Trochet (Hand Percussion) are skilled practitioners who conjure and craft aural images as well as imaginative soundscapes to present a program of music that is wholly their own.”
