SHOW OF HANDS AND MIRANDA SYKES ARE REUNITED AFTER FOUR YEARS APART FOR TRIUMPHANT AUTUMN TOUR
West Country legends Show of Hands and formidable folk singer Miranda Sykes are finally returning to the gig circuit this autumn for a long-anticipated reunion tour.
Miranda will join Steve and Phil on stage to captivate audiences for the first time since 2018, where together, the group will be performing live renditions of their award-winning hits and festival favourites.
Lead singer songwriter Steve Knightley says: “It’s going to be quite emotional in a way, a very reflective atmosphere after a long time apart.
To return to the stage after two cancelled tours and Covid restrictions will be really quite something – that atmosphere is going to be incredible.”
The trio have worked together since 2005 and enjoyed a remarkable 15 years on the road before various circumstances halted their progress.
“We’ll be launching new songs, playing dance classics and revisiting solo pieces. The usual melodic narrative will be accompanied by our trademark West Country base, but it will take on a more reflective form in a response to the times we’ve all been through.
The UK tour kicks off at the end of October and will see the band perform at a variety of unforgettable venues, including the famous Cadogan Hall in London and the Hall for Cornwall – a location the trio hasn’t performed at for over five years.
