Show of Hands with special guest Kirsty Merryn at Salisbury Cathedral
In 2010 Show of hands embarked on their ‘Spires and Beams’ sell-out tour of churches and ancient buildings. Now, seven years later they are bringing their multi-instrumental virtuosity and haunting harmonies back some of our most beautiful Cathedrals such as Salisbury, Wells and Chichester. With a lighting and sound system especially designed to enhance the ambience and acoustics of these iconic venues this is a chance to enjoy England’s most popular acoustic trio in some of her best loved spaces.
Show of Hands have unequivocally become one of the leading forces in British folk. Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are respectively recognised as one of the UK’s best singer songwriters and one of its finest multi instrumentalists. Without frills or fanfares they have carved a unique niche built on a carefully constructed cottage industry and become one of the most in-demand bands on the circuit.
An alchemist couldn’t have come up with a more potent, magical mix than that of Phil Beer, who can, as The Scotsman observed, “play nearly every stringed instrument known to man” and the inspired Steve Knightley, described by broadcaster Mike Harding as “one of England’s greatest singer songwriters”.
