Lyme Folk Weekend: Gigspanner Big Band

Friday 27 August 2021

We kick off Lyme Folk 2020 with one the most exciting collaborations of recent times. Gigspanner began life as a trio - with former Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight being joined by percussionist Sacha Trochet and guitarist Roger Flack - but the line-up has been expanded to form the Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin - winners of the BBC Folk Awards Best Duo) and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire John Spiers joining the fray. As collaborations go, it doesn't get much more mouth-watering than this.
