A captivating show blending prose and music by Raynor Winn and Gigspanner.
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 that explores the South West Coast Path's beauty, stories and traditions.
Raynor's vibrant and thought-provoking compositions have been specially written for Saltlines and artfully wrapped around songs and tunes 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.
