In 2016, FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene. Peter Knight, legendary former violinist of Steeleye Span, was paired with leading
Bellowhead melodeon player, John Spiers, (also of Spiers and Boden), for a special performance which left audiences in awe. 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.
