AIG Album of the year….

January 5th 2010

Both the Electric Ghost e-zine and FATEA website have named AIG as their album of the year 2009.

“Some of the best songs Steve Knightley has ever written – a stellar album of shattering magnificence destined to be our Album of the Year” – Electric Ghost

“Political, passionate, life affirming – this is folk of true Olympian proportions. If there’s a better written, produced and performed album released this year I’m going to have to commission someone to invent new superlatives” – FATEA Magazine



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

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"
