Knight & Spiers to perform concert in Hall

One of the most exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene, Knight and Spiers will be performing a unique concert at King's.

One of the most exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene, Knight and Spiers, will be performing a unique concert in the magnificent setting of the Hall at King’s.

Leading melodeon player John Spiers [Bellowhead, Spiers and Boden] will once again team up with renowned violinist Peter Knight [Steeleye Span, Gigspanner] to present a spectacular evening of folk music in the remarkable Hall at King’s on Sunday 4 December. 

Two of the most gifted musicians in their respective fields, the pair will perform a thrilling mixture of new compositions and extraordinary re-imaginations of traditional tunes in this impressive setting. Having first played together at FolkEast Festival in 2016, the duo have since released two full-length albums including this year’s Both in a Tune, described by Folk Radio UK as an “exhilarating listen and the perfect illustration of how fresh and vital traditional music can still be”.

Sunday 4 December
Doors 6.45pm / Start 7.30pm
£18 / £10 (students)

All profits from the concert will be donated to the College’s Student Welfare and Mental Health Fund.
