Lyme Folk Weekend culminates with the South West favourites presenting a special one-off retrospective filled with songs from their early years together.

Show of Hands began their musical journey 25 years ago here in West Dorset. The band’s first CD was recorded live in Bridport at the Bull hotel, while Steve Knightley has written a host of songs about the people, stories and landscape of this area.

Show of Hands have become one of the leading forces in South-West folk. Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are respectively recognised as one of the UK’s best singer songwriters and one of its finest multi instrumentalists. Without frills or fanfares they have carved a unique niche built on a carefully constructed cottage industry and become one of the most in-demand bands on the circuit.

Saskia Griffiths-Moore and Steve Dagleish are the support acts.
