SHOW of Hands are set to play the Princess Theatre, Torquay, on October 26.
Celebrating a 21-year musical partnership, singer songwriter Steve Knightley and multi instrumentalist Phil Beer (pictured) have sold out the Royal Albert Hall four times and are triple winners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (Best Duo, Best Original Song, Best Live Act).
Joined by musical chameleon Miranda Sykes on double bass they have become one of the acoustic roots scene's major players, widely recognised for their resonating original songs, slick musicianship and audience rapport, featuring on BBC TV's Countryfile, BBC Breakfast and the Andrew Marr show and regularly played by the likes of Bob Harris, Mark Radcliffe and Simon Mayo.
Following a summer of key UK festival headline appearances and a tour of Germany the band return to the UK this autumn for the Hand in Hand.
For the first time Steve, Phil and Miranda will be their own support act, performing three songs apiece in the opening set to showcase their myriad individual talents, before joining forces for the unique Show of Hands experience after the interval.
