Last night of the tour

December 4th 2009

The tour comes to a close with tonight’s concert at the Hall For Cornwall, Truro. As well as Flossie Malavialle we will have those rowdy boys from Port Isaac, Fishermen’s Friends, joining us on stage.

The show is almost sold out but if you fancy joining us at this excellent venue there are just a few tickets left: Box Office 01872 262466

Exeter gig tonight – get there early….

December 3rd 2009

We’ve been advised that the car parks directly outside and opposite the Great Hall are closed due to renovation work taking place on campus. There is still plenty of parking available on campus. Customers park in Car Park A near the Innovation Centre where there will be a shuttle bus running between the car park and the Great Hall for the Show of Hands performance. Alternatively it is a 10 minute walk from the car park to the Great Hall.

The show has sold over 1,000 tickets so we advise people to get there earlier than planned.

The Long Way Home

The landmark new release sees the band returning to their musical folk roots.

‘Immaculately packaged, beautifully produced, finely recorded' and ‘a thoughtful album of warm shades and lower temperature that sounds surprisingly…well…folkie’ - Colin Irwin, fRoots

Order your copy direct from us or here:


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

Nominated for Best Album 2016

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards
