THIS IS THE DEBUT TOUR OF TWO OF THE FINEST MUSICIANS IN THEIR RESPECTIVE FIELDS.
FRI, 23 MAR 2018
In 2016, organisers of FolkEast Festival paired legendary fiddle player Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span) and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers (ex-Bellowhead) for a special one-off concert; it ended up being a genuine festival highlight. With a standing ovation and roars for more, it didn’t seem as though the audience was going to let them go. It was also clear that leaving matters there was not an option. This is the debut tour of two of the finest musicians in their respective fields.
