Absolutely delighted to see you're doing another gig locally so I can bring more friends to share the brilliance with. The bonny birdy is my favourite .. lyrically it has all the major ingredients but the sheer musicality of the song is just breathtaking. Those changes are so well crafted and just perfect for each part as the mood changes along. Sterling stuff boys !
Peter Knight’s Gigspanner has been hailed by Songlines magazine as "another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool", and whilst folk music underpins much of their work, to label these three virtuoso performers purely as 'Folk' musicians is to undersell them by a long chalk.
