We are delighted to welcome to this year’s Festival, Steve Knightley and Phil Beer, aka the award-winning acoustic roots duo, Show of Hands, who will be joining forces with their long-term friend and collaborator Richard Shindell to present their very own transatlantic ‘Special Relationship Tour’ show. Hailing from New Jersey and now a resident of Buenos Aires, Shindell writes flawless, vivid songs that paint pictures and tell stories. Along with a selection of their own material, Steve and Phil will join Richard to add their sparkle on songs such as ‘You Stay Here’, ‘Reunion Hill’ and ‘Next Best Western’. From the Great War to the Civil War, from Bristol to Baltimore, expect a moving Anglo/American exchange of songs of the road, history and the heart. This is a rare chance to sit back and enjoy the sounds of three sublime musical innovators, each at the top of their game.
Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available before the start of the concert and during the interval.
