Charming, disarming and exceptionally talented, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene. One-half of award-winning powerhouse Show of Hands, Beer is equally in demand for his solo shows. In early 2019 Phil sets out to share some of his most-loved songs at carefully selected venues across the UK. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more. Best known as a top flight fiddler his skills don’t end there, a prolific composer, he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro. And he is of course noted for his rich vocals..

Alice Jones is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and dancer from Ripponden. Her background is deeply rooted in the English folk tradition and her music instantly reflects this strong influence. Alice sings mostly traditional songs accompanying herself on the piano or harmonium and sometimes only with foot percussion. Her distinctive voice and innovative style lends a fresh, modern perspective to traditional material and brings new life to old songs.
