Show of Hands - The Cathedrals Tour

06 October 2017
19:30 - 22:00
Show of Hands Concert
With guest Kirsty Merryn

In 2010, Show of hands embarked on their ‘Spires and Beams’ sell-out tour of churches and ancient buildings. Seven years on, they are bringing their multi-instrumental virtuosity and haunting harmonies back to some of our most beautiful cathedrals including Norwich, Salisbury, Ely and Chichester. With a lighting and sound system especially designed to enhance the ambience and acoustics of these iconic venues this is a chance to enjoy England’s most popular acoustic trio in some of her best loved spaces.

Show of Hands are one of the strongest forces in the acoustic-roots music genre. England’s finest and most popular roots partnership has become something of a “people’s band”, regularly voicing the hopes, fears and life stories of myriad people in song. Joined by Miranda Sykes on double bass they are widely recognised for their resonating original songs, stunning musicianship and remarkable audience rapport.

Kirsty Merryn is a London-based singer-songwriter whose music is heavily anchored in the folk tradition. Kirsty has become a regular on London’s folk scene, with her delicately introspective piano-based songs, balanced beautifully by an intimate and finely observational lyrical content.
Airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music was followed by a main stage performance at Sidmouth Folk Week in 2016. Kirsty is currently working on her debut album, a collection of stories about inspirational women.
