2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards double winners Show of Hands – England’s finest roots duo – make a stand in Brighton on their Standing Room Only II tour of the UK.

Singer songwriter Steve Knightley and multi instrumentalist Phil Beer won both the Best Duo title and Best Original Song at the Awards -the latter for the topical title track of their acclaimed new studio album Arrogance Ignorance and Greed, about bankers and bonuses!

The triple Albert Hall sell-out band who have headlined at festivals from WOMAD to Glastonbury are ready to perform from their rich repertoire of original songs. They will be accompanied by striking double bass player and vocalist Miranda Sykes while special guest will be rising indy folk star Ruarri Joseph who has been described as a British Jack Johnson.

“This is a band performing at its passionate peak” The Independent
