Steve Knightley and Phil Beer - Show of Hands - are widely acknowledged as the finest acoustic roots duo in England, and they will be performing at St Mary In The Castle on May 7 at 7.30pm

Knightley, who writes most of their inspired material and Beer, a dazzling multi instrumentalist, have earned a huge reputation, resulting in being voted triple winners at the BBC Folk Awards, selling out the Royal Albert Hall four times, headlining major festivals from Glastonbury to WOMAD and playing all over the world, from Europe to America, Australia and India.

Celebrating their remarkable twenty two year partnership with the current Long Way Home tour, they make a triumphant return to the songs and sounds that have inspired them over the years and mix them with material from their brand new studio album alongside their trademark, anthemic, acoustic classics.

Performing as a duo once more, the original format that launched their careers, this is a rare opportunity to witness two master craftsmen at work and in no finer setting than the intimate and beautiful surroundings of St Mary in the Castle.

Advance booking is advised but cannot be made at St Mary in the Castle.

All auditorium seats have been sold, but there are still balcony seats available (£21.50).
