Folk trio to headline arts centre


Peter Knight brings his folk rock trio Gigspanner to Kettering next Thursday.

Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span at the end of 2013, the legendary fiddle player has turned his full attention to the group, establishing their reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk / roots scene.

Knight is joined in the band by guitarist Roger Flack and congas and djembe player Vincent Salfass.

The band’s latest album, Layers Of Ages, featured in the Telegraph’s Best Folk Albums of 2015 list.

Gigspanner play a carefully curated and skilfully narrated range of material that goes beyond the folk genre’s usual boundaries.

They play on Thursday, November 5. The Kettering venue is in St Andrews Church on the corner of Lindsay Street and Rockingham Road. Doors open at 7.30pm, tickets cost £14 in advance before fees. For more information visit
