One of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene. Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-Bellowhead member John Spiers bring an evening of improvisation and invention of mysterious tunes to Corsham.
The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.
These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.
‘John’s elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and easy-going banter is a quiet triumph’ The Guardian
