A renowned folk trio that has firmly established its reputation as one of the most innovative acts in the genre is appearing for a gig at Wingfield Barns this Sunday, as part of the launch tour for its acclaimed new album.

Gigspanner, headed by the legendary Peter Knight, formerly of folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span, will treat the Wingfield audience to songs from their 2015 album ‘Layer of Ages’, a collection of carefully dismantled and re-imagined traditional folk tunes.

The album has been described by critics as “beautifully executed”, “a feast of imaginative music” and “another milestone in folk’s rebirth of cool”, with influences drawn from a range of multicultural sources.

The concert takes place at the barns in Church Road at 7.30pm on June 7. All tickets are available at the price of £15 - for details, call 01379 384505 or email enquiries@wingfieldbarns.co.uk
