    Biography

    Steve Knightly and Phil Beer are the duo Show of Hands. Their brand of acoustic roots music is strongly rooted in the British folk tradition, but also incorporates an element of americana. They are both strong multi-instrumentalists, with Knightley primarily focusing on guitar, cello mandolin and cuatro, and Phil Beer seems to play most things that have strings, and is one of the finest of fiddlers.

    They hail from the southwest of England, and have reflected the lives and landscapes of this beautiful area in their music. Steve Knightley is a songwriter extraordinaire and has a strong element of social conscience and history in his work.

    Their popularity is so great that they have had several sell-out performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which is an exceptional achievement for a band in this genre.

    They have won many awards, including several at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the premier awards for this music in the UK. Their most recent album, The Long Way Home, was released on 15th January 2016.
