The Gigspanner Big Band And Raynor Winn Present: Saltlines
Taking audiences by storm, Saltlines is a Prose and Music collaboration between bestselling author Raynor Winn and folk-roots supergroup The Gigspanner Big Band, which features some of the most celebrated names on the British folk scene.
Together they have created an emotional odyssey which explores the beauty, stories and traditions of the South West Coast Path.
The vibrant and thought-provoking compositions by Raynor have been especially written for SALTLINES and artfully wrapped around songs and tunes that were originally gathered from the route of the South West Coast Path by the great song collectors Cecil Sharp and Sabine Baring-Gould.
This is an unmissable, life affirming 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.
Formed by legendary Steeleye Span fiddle player Peter Knight, the Gigspanner Big Band line-up features acclaimed multi-instrumental duo Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin – BBC Folk Awards ‘Best Duo’) Bellowhead co-founder and melodeon player extraordinaire, John Spiers, Roger Flack on guitar and Sacha Trochet on percussion.
“Powerful, thought provoking, seamless and blessed with the flow of brilliance. Libretto perfect, musicianship perfect. Quite astonishing”
“Simply perfect. Unbelievably emotional. One hell of an evening”
“Quite simply one of the most exquisite, breathtaking, hauntingly beautiful and life-affirming performances I’ve ever seen. Thank you all so much.”
