Peter’s Gigspanner date at The Lamb


Led by Steeleye Span’s Peter Knight, probably one of this country’s best known and loved fiddle players, Gigspanner seems custom-built to support the more fluid side of his musical personality.

Backing him at The Lamb in Old Town, Eastbourne, on Sunday, January 27 (7.30pm) is talented rock guitarist Roger Flack and percussionist Vincent Salzfaas, a two-man engine room that produces the revs.

There’s Irish folk in the shape of slipjigs, there’s French style Jazz, and there’s African beats and rhythms that pushes Senegal trained Salzfaas to the fore for stunning solos, playing with hands on a collection of Conga’s and Djembe Drums.

But whatever the style, Peter Knight is the star, skipping and slipping with the bow or seamlessly switching to pizzicato finger picking.
