Steve Knightley from Show Of Hands Solo Concert.
Steve Knightely plays a rare solo concert for us during Independent Venue Week 2023 as part of his 2023 Solo Tour, ‘Unlock Me & Other Lockdown Laments’ One half of the highly acclaimed Show of Hands, an English acoustic roots/folk duo formed in 1986 by Steve (guitars, mandolin, mandocello, cuatro) and composer and multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer (vocals, guitars, violin, viola, mandolin, mandocello). In a brand new one man show Steve will perform material that surfaced over two years of isolation and inactivity. Songs such as the ‘Bristol Slaver’ and ‘You’ll Get By’ were refreshed by headlines and current affairs whilst classic covers such as ‘Forever Young’ and ‘The Boys of Summer’ struck a chord with the thousands that tuned in to his hours of online content. Insights, anecdotes and a bunch of new songs will attempt to chronicle and draw a line under an extra episode in all our lives. Support on the night are Cornish folk duo True Foxes.
