Folk duo Show of Hands are performing at the Pavilion Theatre, Worthing at 7.30 pm on Thursday December 4th.
If you haven’t heard of Show of Hands by now, where have you been?
Celebrating a remarkable 22 year partnership, Knightley and Beer 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 Miranda Sykes on double bass they have become one of the acoustic roots scene’s major players, widely recognised for their resonating original songs, stunning musicianship and remarkable audience rapport.
Features on BBC TV’s Countryfile, BBC Breakfast and Andrew Marr shows and regular airplay by the likes of Bob Harris, Mike Harding, Mark Radcliffe, Johnnie Walker and Simon Mayo has taken their music to a wide cross-section of audience.
Having sold out the Connaught Theatre last year, they bring their genre-defying brand of music and instrumental virtuosity to the larger Pavilion Theatre on their only tour of the year and the one chance to see the band locally in 2014. As an added bonus, Steve, Phil and Miranda will be their own support act with a hard-hitting opening set before showcasing their myriad individual talents in solo, duo and trio combinations after the interval.
Tickets are priced at £19.00 with concessions £1.50 discount and Friends at £16.50.
The Pavilion Theatre is at the entrance to Worthing Pier.
