Raynor Winn and the Gigspanner Big Band on the South West Coast Path

Raynor Winn’s best-selling book “The Salt Path” tells how she and her husband Moth became homeless just as he was diagnosed with a terminal neuro-degenerative disease. Despite this, they set off to walk the 630 challenging miles of the South West Coast Path. The redemptive story of their dogged determination, loving relationship and close connection with the natural world made the book a best seller.

Now Raynor has teamed up with Peter Knight’s brilliant Gigspanner Big Band to create a new show which combines traditional music from the South West Coast with words about the area. In this atmospheric episode, host Matthew Bannister goes to rehearsals in a village hall near Exmouth, and then walks the Coast Path with Raynor.
