Never miss another 'Steve Knightley' show
The Landlocked Tour 2017: Steve Knightley
"Steve Knightley is the songwriting force behind Show of Hands, widely acclaimed as the finest acoustic roots duo in England. The 2014 "Grow Your Own Gig" tour saw Steve perform at intimate rural venues, drawing on the English countryside. In 2015, he turned his attention to the sea for his "All at Sea" tour. Songs from both shows were recorded and two albums "Off the Beaten Track" and "All at Sea" emerged. In 2017, Steve combines material from both for this "Landlocked" tour. One half of the concert will feature original and traditional songs of the land and the second half will draw on his nautical themes.
This is an evening not to be missed! Promoted by the Friends of Crewkerne Parish Church, proceeds from the event will go towards repairing this fine medieval building"
