FORMER Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight is bringing his latest act ‘Gigspanner’ to Stourbridge this week.

Since his departure from the folk-rock pioneers at the end of 2013, Peter has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process has established their reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene.

Peter is joined by Roger Flack on Guitar and Sacha Trochet on Percussion, both powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.

This Friday (March 3), Peter and his trio will create a special performance and demonstration for all the students at Glasshouse College, based at Amblecote’s Glasshouse Arts Centre.

They will follow this up with a concert open to the public from 7.30pm, with tickets costing £15 (£12 for concessions), that can be bought on the door, or online by visiting
