Phil on the radio

July 12th 2010

Phil recorded an interview for BBC R Wilts at Abbotsbury and the first section is transmitted on the Sue Davies Afternoon Show between 2 and 4pm Tuesday 13 July. Available on iPlayer for 7 days.

Update on Phil

July 10th 2010

Phil’s now out of hospital after his operation to insert a coronary stent. He’s doing well and obviously needs to take things steady but the signs are he’ll be able to resume his SOH activities next week. Thanks for all your kind messages of support and he’s really sorry to have missed Stonehaven Festival.

Update on Phil

July 9th 2010

Phil has had an angiogram today and has been fitted with a coronary stent. This is a relatively routine procedure and he may even be discharged from hospital today to recuperate at home.
Many thanks for all the good wishes we have received.

Stonehaven without Phil

July 8th 2010

Unfortunately Phil is in hospital overnight for tests and will not be able to get to Stonehaven which is a real shame. Steve will be doing his solo show at the festival instead, along with his song-writing workshop earlier in the day. Sincere apologies to all Show of Hands fans who have tickets, if you have any queries contact the festival. Hilary Cooper 07766 581596, but we hope you will come along anyway.
Our main concern is Phil’s well-being and we should know more tomorrow when the tests have been done.
As soon as we get an update we’ll let you know.



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"
