Powerhouse band Show of Hands return to Band on the Wall in a year that sees them play the Royal Albert Hall as they celebrate an incredible partnership that has put them right at the top of British folk.

The triple BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners (Best Live Act, Best Duo, Best Original Song) are singer songwriter Steve Knightley and multi 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 gig promising a memorable, harmony-rich programme of punch-packing original songs. Support tonight comes from the young and incredibly gifted roots singer songwriter Luke Jackson.


This concert will begin at 8.30pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
