I'm very pleased to announce 10 new dates with the amazing Peter Knight in the run up to Christmas this year. As well as tunes from Well Met, we will be playing some new seasonal material based on traditional Christmas/Wassail/Winterval/Yule music. You can see the full list of dates over on the gigs page here.
“A blend of elegant, rhythmic and virtuoso playing and easygoing folk club banter. A quiet triumph”
— The Guardian
John Spiers, better known in folk circles as Squeezy, is one of the leading melodeon players of his generation. Well known for his partnership with Jon Boden as well as being a member of Bellowhead, the most successful folk band in recent history. John was also a member of Eliza Carthy’s band, featuring on her 2002 Mercury nominated album, Anglicana.
Mixing infectious dance tunes with incredibly sensitive and moving slow airs on a mind-boggling range of different squeezeboxes, John’s solo shows are a mixture of traditional material and his own more intricate compositions.
