GigSpanner Big Band Live at Stanley Halls

Tue 20 Nov
The Stanley Hall
folk, live music, performance

BOOK TICKETS

Start Time: 8.00pm

“What a fabulous team they make, together producing a startlingly new musical form with few, if any, true antecedents even within the hallowed worlds of prog and folk-rock. The flights of musical and interpretive fancy are staggering in their natural invention” Fatea Magazine

Periodically, a pairing of two acts with their own (very) unique identities produces an electrifying musical force that is even greater than the impressive sum of its parts.

As a trio, Gigspanner, formed by (ex-Steeleye Span) legendary fiddle player Peter Knight, has built a massive reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and “reshaping it in fascinating ways” fRoots

BBC Folk Award winners (Best Duo) Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are described by The Guardian as being “Subtle, bravely original…a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma”.

Their appearances together as the Gigspanner Big Band are a rare but highly sought after affair, thanks to performances of dazzling musicianship and arresting chemistry.

Ceilidh at The Halls: Panjandrum

Fri 14 Dec
The Stanley Hall

BOOK TICKETS

“Panjandrum / Panjandrum/ n. A bunch of multi-instrumentalist nerds who firmly believe that dance music should be just as good to listen as to dance to, and indeed vice-versa”

Earworms are our speciality; eclectic melodies from all over Britain, Europe and Scandinavia as well as some self penned gems, all kicked into shape for e-ceilidh dances. Having played together for getting on for 25 years as part of The Committee Band, we thought it was a shame to let all that experience go to waste after the farewell Committee Band dance at the 2010 Xmas Knees-Up.

From beginners to seasoned veterans all are welcome to a night of dancing and meeting new friends at the glorious Stanley Halls!! This month we have the Pajandrum ceilidh band! With the authentic wooden sprung floors, and the Stanley Halls Bar open throughout; expect a night of laughs, great music, and good times to be had by all!
