Product description

More than two decades on the road. 25 album releases. 3 BBC Folk Awards, 4 Royal Albert Hall sell-outs. Tours in 14 countries from America to Australia. Show of Hands have unequivocally become one of the leading forces in British folk. Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are respectively recognised as one of the UK's best singer songwriters and one of its finest multi instrumentalists. Now the Devon duo's landmark release The Long Way Home sees them returning to their musical roots, firing the ignition on a 12-track album that has "England" running through it like letters through a stick of rock. Travelling full circle to the songs and tunes that inspired them to start playing as a duo back in 1991 it revisits all the classic ingredients of traditional folk themes - songs of war, exile, seafaring and loves lost and found. Produced by Mark Tucker, the first album on their own Hands On Music label in three years unveils five new Knightley songs, fresh takes on quintessentially English traditional numbers and songs by collaborator Chris Hoban. This is music from the heart and history of England. From the haunting to the heart-breaking, the nautical to the rural, it distils influences old and new but always with that unmistakable Show of Hands sound.
