Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
On a summer's day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today's folk scene. 
 
PETER KNIGHT, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, JOHN SPIERS, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe. With a standing ovation and roars for more, and much to the delight of folk fans everywhere, Knight and Spiers decided not to leave things there. 

The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.
