Thursday February 8th - Show of Hands
About Show of Hands
In the spring of 2024, music enthusiasts and folk fans across the nation are in for a treat as Steve Knightley and Phil Beer prepare to embark on a journey back to where it all began. With a rich history spanning three decades the duo are renowned for their unique ‘hands-on' cottage industry approach to touring, and this upcoming tour promises to be a celebration of their enduring legacy. Village halls, folk clubs, small arts centres, and community venues are the very places where they honed their craft, building their following from the grassroots up.
Following this tour, Steve and Phil will be taking a well-deserved break from the limelight. They plan to pursue solo projects, explore new creative horizons, and recharge their artistic batteries. This indefinite hiatus marks the end of an era, but it also heralds exciting new beginnings for two of the folk world’s best loved musicians. Show of Hands' dedication to their roots, their music, and the communities that have supported them is a testament to their enduring legacy.
Having sold out the Royal Albert Hall four times, they're now coming to play for you, at Hove's most exclusive (OK, smallest) concert venue.
