Phil Beer

Sunday 23 September


Phil Beer is the multi-instrumental half of the west countryʼs award winning acoustic duo, Show of Hands, described as a true craftsman, a master musician and consummate performer.

With a professional career of over 36 years, Phil has a great deal of material to draw on for his solo appearances. All are songs and music of memory and significance sung in the subtle and melodic Phil Beer style and interjected with musings and amusings to an almost personal audience. It is a treat of past and current favourites from one of the most popular musicians on the acoustic circuit.

Support for Phil Beer

Velvet & Stone’s brand of indie-folk combines haunting soundscapes with catchy pop hooks and great songs – giving an original and beautiful take on a traditional genre. Crafting their live set with performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Somersault, they take their audiences on a journey from stunning soundscapes to foot-stomping folk-rock.

Led by the ethereal combination of Lara Snowdon’s vocals, and Kathryn Tremlett’s violin, Velvet & Stone’s music draws upon personal stories, melancholy tales and rugged landscapes, creating a sound that is difficult to forget. Their music has strong folk-revival influences combined with contemporary folk flavours, with comparisons drawn with Mumford & Sons, Bear’s Den and Seth Lakeman, combined with the feminine lyricism of Laura Marling and Lisa Hannigan.

The band released their new single ‘Raise Your Ghosts‘ in August 2017, followed by the The Embers EP in October 2017. In 2018, they are releasing a series of live videos and singles, and are working on their debut album, in addition to regularly touring and playing at festivals across the UK. Their music has gained plaudits from across the music press, airtime on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales and is championed by their local BBC Introducing team!
