Folk Favourite Phil Beer (Show Of Hands) Announces 2016 Solo And band tours


Solo Tour: Jan 8 -April 2, 2016

Phil Beer Band tour: March 2-19, 2016

“Phil Beer can play virtually every stringed instrument known to man”- The Scotsman

“Fans hang on Phil Beer’s every note”Americana UK

“Phil Beer’s stylish fiddle gives the songs a rich hue”MOJO

“A Phil Beer gig is one spent in the company of a true craftsman, a master musician and consummate performer” – Spiral Earth



PLUS: Phil Beer Band tour in March


No sooner will the New Year clock chimes fade away than the indefatigable Phil Beer, one of the UK’s finest multi instrumentalists, will be out on the road for a brand new 29-date solo UK tour.


Exeter-based Phil, best known as one half of folk legends Show of Hands (with singer songwriter Steve Knightley) will also have his own

Phil Beer Band on the road in March and will find time to weave in appearances with the Bully Wee Band.


Named Musician of the Year in the 2011 Spiral Awards, run by popular music website Spiral Earth and nominated for the Musician of the Year title in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music.


Perhaps best known for his fiddle prowess, his skills don’t stop there – alongside rich vocals he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro. * See Phil performing Flowers of the Forest/The Holy Brook/When This Bloody War is Over



In March Phil will be out and about with his excellent six-piece Phil Beer Band. Described by The Guardian as “where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide”, the band performs a unique blend of “folk and roll”, trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.
