An exciting musical collaboration between two extraordinary musicians will be making their only appearance in Cornwall at Devoran Acoustic Sessions.

Peter Knight and John Spiers have been associated with two of the most successful and influential bands in the history of folk-roots music - Steeleye Span and Bellowhead.

On a summers day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival put the pair together for a memorable performance.

Peter, the legendary violinist and former member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span, was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe.

With no space to be found in the marquee, people stood five deep in the pouring rain in order to witness the bringing together of two of the most genuinely gifted musicians in their respective fields.

With a standing ovation and roars for more, and much to the delight of folk fans everywhere, Knight and Spiers decided not to leave things there.

On the March 1 last year, they released their debut album Well Met and embarked on a 23-date tour of the UK.

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.

Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.

These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time.

They will be appearing at Devoran Village Hall on Friday, March 1.

The show starts at 7.30pm (doors open 7pm).

Tickets (£15) are available from 01872 262466 (Mon-Fri 11am-4pm) / The audience is welcome to bring their own refreshments.
