Peter Knight & John Spiers At Shaftesbury Arts Centre
December 9 @ 7:30 pm GMT£18
Two famous musicians at the top of their game give a set with a seasonal flavour.
While Peter Knight, as part of Steeleye Span’s classic 1970s line-up, helped invent a brand of folk rock that is still influential today, John Spiers as co-founder of the almighty Bellowhead has had an equally profound impact on the landscape of traditional music over the last two decades.
Having first come together as a ‘one off’ gig at FolkEast in 2016, the duo has developed into one of the most thrilling exponents of traditional music, always consciously respectful of their heritage but not afraid to bend the rules. These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.
“A beautiful snapshot of two musicians at the pinnacle of their craft. Listeners will find themselves lost in something magical; anyone will struggle to find something as masterful as this for a long, long time” Bright Young Folk.
“An extraordinary collaboration between two musicians at the absolute top of their game. This is an adventure that takes in musical detours you’d be mad to ignore” Tradfolk.
