Celebrating a remarkable 21-year partnership, award-winning folk group Show of Hands perform at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool on Friday.

They have sold out the Royal Albert Hall four times and are triple winners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Singer songwriter Steve Knightly, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer and Miranda Sykes on double bass were also last year’s headliners at the Fylde Folk Festival in Fleetwood.

Show of Hands have become one of the acoustic roots scene’s major players, widely recognised for their original songs, musicianship and audience.

The Anglo-American-themed studio album released last year was acclaimed by many critics as their best yet and they will continue to showcase it on tour.
