New venue for Steve’s solo show, Sat 2nd Mar

February 24th 2013

Hi Folks,
Sad to say the Brewhouse will not now be available for my solo show on Saturday 2nd March.
There seems to be little or no prospect of ticket refunds and they suggest you contact your credit card companies if possible.

We have, however managed to find an alternative venue – The Functions Room at the Honiton Motel, Turks Head Lane, Honiton, EX14 1BQ.
It’s informal, intimate and above all – available!
Tickets will be £12.00, cash on the night.
If you are able to come and to give us an idea of numbers please send an email to Kevin Henderson

So sorry about this – it was looking to be a big night, but this should be a cracker too!

Sad News

February 12th 2013

Steve, Phil, Miranda and all the Show of Hands team are shocked and saddened at the news that the tragic accident at GLive has now taken two lives. Paul McMullen, the highly regarded promoter, died at the scene and Trevor Grills, one of Fisherman’s Friends, died in hospital yesterday of severe head wounds. Our thoughts are with their families and friends.



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"
