After thirty remarkable years of non-stop touring Show of Hands, comprising Steve Knightley and Phil Beer, have announced that they will no longer tour together as Show of Hands for the foreseeable future. Whilst Phil and Steve will still be available for recording, solo touring, and special events, the duo has decided to prioritise their well-being, creativity, and longevity above the demands of the road.
This final Full Circle tour of two parts is a chance for Show of Hands to say goodbye and celebrate the music they love so much. Autumn 2023 is Part 1 of the Full Circle tour and sees Show of Hands joined by their long-time collaborator, Miranda Sykes. The second part of the Full Circle tour will start in February 2024 and is a chance for Show of Hands as a Duo to return to their roots, performing in some of the Folk Clubs and Village Halls where they began their musical journey. In March, they will be appearing at small arts centres, and community venues.
This night will be a memorable occasion and is a concert not to be missed. It is sure to be a sell-out night and advanced ticket booking is an absolute MUST. ★★★★★★★★★\★★★★ NB: As the venue is not licensed to sell alcohol - bring your own if you wish. Tea and coffee will be available prior to and during the interval.
