Show of Hands - 'Best One Yet'

Show of Hands - 'Best One Yet'

Autumn Tour 2021 -


Music legends Phil Beer and Steve Knightley will return as Show of Hands to captivate audiences with live renditions of their award-winning hits and festival favourites, two years since their concerts were cancelled due to Covid-19. The evening will feature a set of iconic signature tracks from the last 25 years, encapsulated on their soon to be released new album Singled Out, whilst the second set will bring together new material and classic Show of Hands tracks.


Announcement to fans from their management:

Over the years you may be aware that Steve and Phil have never worked for set fees but for a percentage of the total ticket sales - this has been their business model from the village hall to the Albert Hall and has enabled many of you to promote risk-free ’Show of Hands’ concerts yourselves.


However, with less than a month to go it seems that lots of people are still understandably hesitant about returning to live music venues and it is with heavy hearts that we realise that the projected income simply cannot sustain the larger four-piece line up featuring Miranda and Cormac.


So rather than cancel or postpone shows the evening will now feature Steve and Phil in their original duo format, with the first set focusing on songs from the forthcoming album ’Singled Out' with the second set being a mix of new material and classic 'Show of Hands' anthems.


We do hope that you understand the situation. Times are hard for everyone in entertainment at present and we haven’t taken this decision lightly, but with your support and goodwill we hope that this will still be a popular and successful tour and Steve and Phil look forward to seeing you out there.

Police Dog Hogan.

Police Dog Hogan.

We can't wait to welcome back one of our favourite bands here at the Beehive.


Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic seven-piece, combining fiddle, trumpet, mandolin, drums and guitars with four-part harmonies in an exuberant and genre-defying fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Much-loved Guardian columnist Tim Dowling adds his banjo to the musical mix.


The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2 said a “great night out was guaranteed” at their joyful shows; and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “a really good, fun time”.


Eliot James (of Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Noah and the Whale, and Two Door Cinema Club fame) produced the band’s second CD, and Al Scott (Seth Lakeman, Oysterband, The Levellers, Asian Dub Foundation) oversaw the new album, ‘Wild By the Side of the Road’, which spent several weeks in the official UK Americana charts.


Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his “Under the Apple Tree Sessions” channel.


They’ve played at festivals from Port Eliot and Bestival to Kendal Calling and Larmer Tree as well as Glastonbury and the Cornbury Festival. Most shows on their last tour, from London, Bristol, Liverpool and Exeter to Salisbury’s City Hall were sold out and were rapturously received.

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman.

The 'On Reflection' Tour


2020 marked 25 years of making music together for this popular wife and husband duo.


Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships. To celebrate and acknowledge this milestone, the couple will revisit and reinterpret songs which span their career. From the early days of folk supergroup 'Equation' through to the current release 'Personae' with a nod or two along the way to their extra-curricular musical adventures, the evening promises a whistle-stop tour through their artistic journey to date.


Bonded by an unseen alchemy, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.


Over two decades of performance they have never been trapped in a groove – always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with their self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive.

Hazel O'Connor: Breaking Glass 40 Years On - Hallelujah!

Hazel O'Connor: Breaking Glass 40 Years On - Hallelujah!

Breaking Glass 40 Years On-Hallelujah! 

 

“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” Telegraph


The first major female star of the 80s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame in 1980 starring in the film Breaking Glass.


There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel’s ageless songs include ‘Eighth Day’, ‘Will You’, ‘Big Brother’, ‘Monsters in Disguise’, ‘Calls The Tune’, ‘If Only’, ‘Give Me An Inch’, ‘Blackman’ and ‘Hanging Around’ – all of which seem even more relevant in our present times.


Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) keyboards. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat.


“It's all there, that voice, soaring sax ...timeless.” Glastonbury Festival


“The sturdiness and earthy expression of her voice...marvellous” Hot Press                                             

More details can be found at www.hazeloconnor.com


When Hazel O'Connor was last at the Beehive it was a sell-out and an amazing show.


This performance is a reschedule. If you have pre-booked tickets for 27 March 2020 or 19 March 2021, they will be valid for this date.
