The Long Way Home

The landmark new release sees the band returning to their musical folk roots.
The release date is 15th Jan 2016, but pre-release copies will be exclusively available to buy on the Autumn tour.


Show of Hands are undeniably one of the strongest current forces in acoustic music - England's finest and most popular roots duo and something of a "people's band".

"Formidable operators in the roots arena. A class act"

The Independent

"Voted Best Duo and the Best Original Song"
