Wake The Union reaches #73 in the Official Album Chart

October 22nd 2012

Bizarrely sandwiched between Jay-Z with Kanye West and the Best of INXS this is the first time a Show of Hands album has charted in the Top 75 of the Official Album Chart.
With alt-folk/acoustic acts like the Mumfords, Jake Bugg, Ed Sheeran, Ben Howard and Bellowhead (brilliant, guys) giving the X-Factored crowd a run for their money we’re in good company.

Thanks to all of you out there for buying the album and supporting us.

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"
