Hand in Hand tour

October 21st 2013

Well there’s the first week of the tour already been and gone. Thanks to everyone who came along and made them such great and hugely enjoyable evenings. This week we head up to London on Tuesday and the Royal Geographical Society (very posh) to play at the 20th Anniversary event for the Countryside Restoration Trust. We then head to Hastings to the recently restored Neo-Classical St Mary in the Castle, now a multi-facility arts theatre space (we last played there in 2000-something). Then a return to G Live in Guildford on Thursday, followed by an old favourite City Hall Salisbury and finally on Saturday a first visit to Torquay’s Princess Theatre. Might even be home by midnight after that one! Steve & Phil.

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

Order your copy direct from us or here:


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"
