The Gigspanner Big Band and Raynor Winn (The Salt Path) present SALTLINES

Taking audiences by storm, SALTLINES is a Prose and Music collaboration between bestselling author Raynor Winn and The Gigspanner Big Band, featuring 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 thought-provoking compositions, written and vibrantly performed by Raynor, are artfully wrapped around traditional songs and tunes gathered from the south-west.

SALTLINES is a 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.
