Show of Hands frontman’s gig

One of the country’s most widely-acclaimed roots and acoustic musicians is to play a gig in Market Harborough.

Steve Knightley is the songwriting force behind Show of Hands, the acoustic roots duo who have three Royal Albert Hall sell-outs to their name.

Following on from the success of his Grow Your Own Gig tour last year, Steve is now taking his solo show to village halls the length and breadth of the country.

Clipston man Adam Bugla, of concert organisers AM Gigs, said: “We have been lucky enough to secure Steve for one of these shows which promises to be a great evening.”

The gig is taking place at Market Harborough Congregational Church’s Jubilee Hall, in Bowden Lane, at 8pm on Saturday, March 21. Doors open at 7.30pm.

Exeter-based singer-
songwriter Steve writes most of material for Show of Hands, which also features multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer.

Together they have won numerous awards and are often cited as one of the UK’s most successful folk/roots duos.

Mr Bugla added: “Steve is renowned for his strong, narrative songs which reflect the escapades, hopes and fears not only of people in his native West Country but beyond, and he pulls no punches when writing highly-literate songs about bigger, global issues.”

Tickets cost £16 and went on sale last week. They are available from MH Music in St Mary’s Road, Harborough, or from website www.amgigs.co.uk.
