This event has been and gone.

Described since as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond” (Folk Radio UK), Gigspanner has stayed true to their quest to take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator” (Spiral Earth).

Their most recent release, ‘The Wife of Urban Law’ received several ‘Best Of’ end of year accolades, including making it on to Mojo Magazine's ‘The 10 Best Folk Albums of 2017’ list, and Peter has received Fatea's Award for Instrumentalist of the Year for Achievement in 2017.

Peter is joined by Roger Flack on Guitar and Sacha Trochet on Percussion, both powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.
