There is no doubt that Show Of Hands the four piece are now something of a ‘supergroup’, and their combined musicianship is guaranteed to sound nothing short of magical!
Steve Knightley, Phil Beer, Miranda Sykes & Cormac Byrne.
“Show Of Hands are undeniably one of the strongest current forces in acoustic music - England’s finest and most popular roots act and something of a ‘people’s band’!”
More than two decades on the road, 25 album releases, 3 BBC Folk Awards and 5 Royal Albert Hall sell-outs - Show Of Hands have unequivocally become one of the leading forces in British folk and roots. As BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe says, “they are now at the top of their game!”

Show Of Hands
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).
