Knight and Spiers perform concert in Hall

Folk duo Knight and Spiers performed a wonderful festive concert in aid of the College's Student Mental Health and Welfare Fund.

Folk duo Peter Knight and John Spiers performed a wonderful festive concert in aid of the College's Student Welfare and Mental Health Fund to a rapt audience in the Hall on Sunday evening. The concert was something of a homecoming for melodeon player John, who studied at the College in the 1990s, and was the first of what we hope will be a series of collaborations with FolkEast in bringing spectacular folk music to King's. 

Last night's gig with Peter Knight was just lovely in the King's College great hall. What a fantastic venue for acoustic music and lovely to be back at the place I was lucky enough to call home for three years of my life!
