Show of Hands + Alden, Patterson and Dashwood

Thu 22 Nov 2018 Doors open: 7:30
Tickets: £25 ADV

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.  

Together, Steve and Phil will deliver the festival favourites that fans know and love, with Cormac adding a new twist. They’ll also showcase songs destined for the new studio album.  

Steve and Phil have an unblemished track record when it comes to encouraging emerging talent, and for their autumn tour they have enlisted no less than Norwich-based Alden, Patterson and Dashwood – a striking combination of guitar, fiddle, dobro and voices.
