The Other Place, 7pm
As a trio, Gigspanner, formed by fiddle player Peter Knight, has established a reputation as a vibrant part of the British folk scene.
Their appearances with BBC Folk Award winners (Best Duo) Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, John Spiers (co-founder of Bellowhead and one half of Spiers and Boden, and most recently, Knight and Spiers), guitarist Roger Flack and Sacha Trochet on hand percussion are a rare, but mesmerising affair.
With the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, the Gigspanner Big Band performances are rich and atmospheric.
