Review of RAH preview show at the Brewhouse Taunton

April 4th 2012

A reviewer at The Brewhouse Taunton show last Friday has held back publication of his review so as not to spoil any surprise element of the SOH 20th year celebration concert at The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 7th April.
But for any of you still thinking about going here’s an extract from the review:

“this show represented a sharp shift of focus from the band I started following ten years ago – it was Show of Hands as you’ve never heard them before. It’s exhilarating to see them continue to push their own musical boundaries. Without giving too much away let me just say that the Royal Albert Hall audience is in for a treat. Guaranteed”

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"
