“Where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide!” (The Guardian)

Phil is best known for his multi-instrumental wizardry as one half of England’s top acoustic roots duo Show Of Hands.

The Phil Beer Band perform a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.

The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn, Emily Slade and of course, Phil Beer - and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.

“Always worth a trip to see musicians of this quality - but it is the repertoire that makes a Phil Beer Band gig extra special!” (Folk Radio UK)

“An evening with The Phil Beer Band is fast, frenetic, feel-good and leavened with a good helping of humour!” (fRoots Magazine)
