Knight & Spiers

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

In the summer of 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival had the grand idea of pairing legendary fiddle player Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span) and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers (ex-Bellowhead) for a special 'one off' concert at that year's festival.

In the event, it ended up being a genuine festival highlight, with no space to be found in the Marquee and people standing five deep in pouring rain. For a few minutes at the close of their performance, with a standing ovation and roars for more, it didn't seem as though the audience was going to let them go. As the MC commented, it was one of those occasions when people could say "I was there". It was also clear that leaving matters there was not an option.

This then is the debut tour of two of the finest musicians in their respective fields.

"Elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and easygoing folk club banter …a quiet triumph!” The Guardian
