In the spring of 2024, music enthusiasts and folk fans across the nation are in for a treat as Steve Knightley and Phil Beer embark on a journey back to where it all began.

With a rich history spanning three decades, the duo are renowned for their unique hands-on, cottage industry approach to touring, and this tour – Full Circle Part II – promises to be a celebration of this enduring legacy.

Village halls, folk clubs, small arts centres, and community venues are the places where they honed their craft, building their following from the grassroots up. 

This special tour will be an opportunity for Show of Hands to reconnect with their loyal supporters, and a chance to inspire a new generation of folk musicians.

One of the defining aspects of Show of Hands’ career has been their unwavering commitment to supporting grassroots promoters. This ethos has not only enriched the folk music scene but also strengthened the bonds between artists and their audiences.

Following the tour, Steve and Phil will be taking a well-deserved break from the limelight. They plan to pursue solo projects, explore new creative horizons, and recharge their artistic batteries.

This indefinite hiatus marks the end of an era, but also heralds exciting new beginnings for two of the folk world’s best loved musicians.
