Peter Knight (ex Steeleye) & Jon Spiers (ex Bellowhead)
Saturday, March 16
8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
In the summer of 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival had the grand idea of pairing Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span) and John Spiers (ex-Bellowhead) for a special ‘one off’ concert at that year’s festival.
In the event, it ended up being a genuine festival highlight, with no space to be found in the Marquee and people standing five-deep in the pouring rain. For a few minutes at the close of their performance, with a standing ovation and roars for more, it didn’t seem as though the audience was going to let them go….it was a genuinely spine-tingling occasion. As the MC commented, it was one of those occasions when people could say “I was there”.
It came as no real surprise that the one-off special led to a more permanent arrangement, and with their debut studio album ‘Well Met’ which the duo will feature at their gig at Rhosygilwen
