Peter Knight’s Gigspanner

“I can only think of a handful of folk musicians world-wide that have the kind of relationship with their instrument that Peter Knight has: Martin Hayes, Enda Scahill, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker, Martin SimpsonMany people as they trickled out into the night said that this was one of the best gigs they’d ever been to. I’d agree with that. If you get a quarter of a chance to see them, go – there were people there last night who had travelled many miles to be there. It was well worth every mile” – Mike Harding: Broadcaster/Musician/Writer
