Show Of Hands + Miranda Sykes + Matt Gordon + Leonard Podolak
"Powerhouse band Show of Hands come to Dartford as they celebrate 20 years of an incredible partnership that has put them right at the top of British folk.
The triple BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners (Best Live Act, Best Duo, Best Original Song) are singer songwriter Steve Knightley and multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer, joined by double bassist/vocalist Miranda Sykes. Their captivating music dips and dives through roots, rock, blues, country and traditional folk promising a memorable, harmony-rich programme of punch-packing original songs."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are widely acknowledged as the finest acoustic roots duo in England. Knightley, who writes most of their inspired material and Beer, a dazzling multi instrumentalist, have built up a huge following which has seen them sell out the Albert Hall four times and headline at major festivals from Glastonbury to WOMAD.
Voted Best Duo in the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (as well as clinching Best Original Song for Knightley's acclaimed Arrogance Ignorance and Greed) the
jury is still out on just what kind of music they play. A genre defying mix of rock, roots, blues, country, trad, and often influenced by the music of other countries, it is played out on an array of instruments from slide guitar to fiddle, mandolin to South American cuatro.
'Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act' (The Independent).
