Show of Hands are known for their genre defying mix of rock, roots, blues, country and trad, played out on an array of instruments from slide guitar to fiddle, mandolin to South American cuatro. Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are widely acknowledged as the finest acoustic roots duo in England.
Tonight’s performance features the full Albert Hall line-up including Miranda Sykes, Rex Preston, Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, Chris Hoban and The Lost Sound Chorus, Matt Gordon & Leonard Podolak and Matt Clifford.
‘Since joining forces more than two decades ago, Knightley and Beer have become not only a major force in British folk but also a genuinely inspiring success story. It has not been frills or fanfares but sheer grit, craft, determination and diamond-hard songwriting that has brought them such a fiercely devoted audience and sell-out tours.’
