Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are two extraordinary craftsmen with one unique sound. Dovetailing old songs with new, this is an unmissable celebration of the duo’s enduring impact on the UK roots, acoustic and folk music scene. The extraordinary reaction to Show of Hands’ haunting cathedral tour ‘Sanctuary’ has been followed with sell-out shows at eminent venues like Shakespeare’s Globe and the Cutty Sark, solo tours, duo tours and working on a new studio album.
Show of Hands weave story and melody to create a spellbinding display of consummate musicianship. Multi-award-winning, and with five sell-out Royal Albert Hall shows under their belts, 2018 has seen a whirlwind circuit of appearances at major festivals.
Miranda and husband Dan are embarking on their own adventure with their first baby due in November, and so Cormac Byrne, legendary percussionist of Seth Lakeman Band fame, steps into the breach to complete the Show of Hands autumn trio.
