Peter Knight Keeping Safe in Quarantine for Summer Tour Dates

Jul 21, 2021

The Master that is Peter Knight has been dutifully quarantining after arriving in this country from his home in France.   
Rehearsing alone before proper rehearsals start next Monday for gigs and festivals with the Gigspanner Trio / Big Band and his duo partner John Spiers,   he had  “a bit of a ‘pinch me’ moment”,  when he realised that there was only one week to go to the first Big Band concert since November 2019.   Acknowledging that reconnecting with all his band mates as they play music to live audiences again was going to be “very emotional, probably for audiences too”  I can’t help but agree with him, so it might be wise,  to wash a clean hanky to hide in your pocket,  if you are lucky enough to be in the audience on one of the following dates !! 
(For those who can’t make it to a gig in person,  there is opportunity to wipe away those tears of joy in the comfort of your own home,  as there are a couple of live stream events!)
