Show of Hands with Miranda Sykes
Powerhouse band Show of Hands come to the Town Hall in a year that sees them play the Royal Albert Hall 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 Award winners are singer songwriter Steve Knightley and mult-instrumentalist Phil Beer, joined by double bassist/vocalist Miranda Sykes. Their captivating music dips and dives through roots, rock, blues, country and trad folk.
An unmistakable signature sound played out on a wealth of instruments from slide guitar to mandocello, fiddle to South American cuatro, each performance promising a memorable, harmony-rich programme of punch-packing original songs.
