Show of Hands join forces with long-term friend and collaborator Richard Shindell to present their very own transatlantic ‘Special Relationship’ show this spring. Hailing from New Jersey and now a resident of Buenos Aires, Shindell writes flawless, vivid songs that paint pictures and tell stories. Along with a selection of their own material, Steve and Phil will join Richard to add their sparkle on songs such as You Stay Here, Reunion Hill and Next Best Western. From the Great War to the Civil War, from Bristol to Baltimore, expect a moving Anglo/American exchange of songs of the road, history and the heart.
Supported by Cormac Byrne and Adam Summerhayes
This brand new duo and will release their debut record ‘Stone Soup’ in May 2019. It is the result of a collaboration between two extraordinarily diverse and celebrated musicians: BBC award-winning Irish percussionist, Cormac Byrne (“startling percussion work” - The Guardian) and internationally renowned UK fiddler, Adam Summerhayes (“astonishing, all-out virtuosity” - The New York Times) create astounding music for the 21st century which defies definition. Combining elements of their own deep musical traditions, their music is both “utterly compelling” (BBC Music Magazine) and “bridges the gap between Ireland and the world” (The Sunday Business Post).
