Saltlines - The Gigspanner Big Band and Raynor Winn

Details

Saltlines is an inspiring ‘Prose and Music’ collaboration between bestselling author Raynor Winn (The Salt Path) and folk-roots supergroup The Gigspanner Big Band, which features some of the biggest names on the folk scene.

Together they celebrate the beauty, stories and traditions of the South West Coast Path in a seamless performance of old songs with their origins in the South-West, and brand new compositions…compositions which have been written by Raynor especially for this production.

This is an unmissable experience for anyone who appreciates beautiful words, inspiring music and above all, cherishes the social and natural history of Britain’s coastline, and the common threads that bind its fragile communities and wildlife.

Beginning life as a trio formed by legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight, the line-up has been expanded to form The Gigspanner Big Band, with acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin – BBC Folk Awards ‘Best Duo’) and Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, joining the fray.
