The Gigspanner Big Band are a unique force in British folk music...
Having spent much of the past two years touring alongside best-selling author Raynor Winn (The Salt Path) with their massively successful prose and music collaboration SALTLINES, the Gigspanner Big Band return to their six-piece format, showcasing material from their new album, due for release in 2025. Their high-energy, virtuosic performances appeal equally to traditionalists and to those looking for something more experimental, and they have garnered praise from publications as varied as fRoots, The Telegraph and The Wire, where they were described as ‘melodically folk-rooted yet open and innovative beyond the constraints of genre’

"What a fabulous team they make, together producing a startlingly new musical form with few, if any, antecedents. The flights of musical fancy are staggering in their natural invention"
Fatea Magazine
"With the Gigspanner Big Band, Peter Knight has assembled a group of musicians intent on making some of the most important and exhilarating art ever to sit under the banner of folk music" FRUK
“Musical brilliance is abundant” Mojo Magazine
"Spectacular” 5* R2 Magazine
“Utterly thrilling” Northern Soul
"Totally blown away by the spellbinding Gigspanner Big Band. Lost for words..."
