We’re thrilled to welcome folk supergroup Show of Hands for what promises to be one of the highlights of our Burrs Live opening weekend.

For this outdoor show Steve Knightley and Phil Beer — undisputed kings of the folk, roots and acoustic scene — will be joined by long-term collaborator Miranda Sykes and master percussionist Cormac Byrne.

With new songs, new sounds, heartbeats and harmonies, you’re in for a real treat.

Support comes from acoustic guitarist Becky Langan.
