FolkCast Interview Special 006 - Show Of Hands


Phil, Steve and Miranda - Show Of Hands
A special interview edition of FolkCast is now available for download.

On the last day of March, I made a cross-border raid from my home in Lancashire up to the pretty Yorkshire market town of Settle, where Show Of Hands were playing a sold-out concert in a lovely venue, the Victoria Theatre.

Before the show I had a chat with Steve Knightley and Phil Beer, and also Miranda Sykes, their bass player, all about what's going on with one of England's greatest folk outfits, including touring, festivals, solo projects, playing the huge anti-cuts rally in London's Hyde Park and Steve's involvement in the songwriting project based around the life of folk song collector Cecil Sharp.

Any comments about the interview? Post them here!
