ONE of west Dorset’s finest is bringing his solo tour to the town he used to call home.
Phil Beer of Show of Hands fame will be performing String Theory at Bridport Town Hall on Saturday, March 17.
This year looks set to be a different yet very special year for Phil. The String Theory tour will feature material old and new, and showcase Phil’s exceptional skill on all-things-stringed.
With the return of Folkboat this summer, there are limited chances to catch Phil in 2018, so grab your tickets while you can.
When a musician’s CV drops names like Mike Oldfield, the Rolling Stones and Steve Harley, you know you’re dealing with a man at the top of his game. Phil Beer is one-half of the multi-award-winning acoustic folk and roots powerhouse Show of Hands, and he’s also in demand in his own right as a captivating solo performer.
So, what does a man as talented as Phil Beer do when he’s not selling out the Royal Albert Hall with Show of Hands? He embarks on an eagerly awaited solo tour, visiting a string of carefully selected venues throughout the UK. He’ll be delivering his unique recipe of rich vocals and flawless musicianship across a range of stringed instruments (slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American Cuatro).
Alongside some Show of Hands classics, Phil will deliver his signature interpretation of much-loved folk and rock songs alongside a wealth of brand-new material, and there’ll be the odd laugh thrown in for good measure.
Phil said: “2017 was such a busy year with the Albert Hall show, festivals and band tours.
“This year I’m looking forward to something a bit different. There’s something about a solo tour which makes me feel really connected with the audience. I’m also planning the release of a very special eight disc boxset and am looking forward to sharing new material from that.”
Following the tour, Phil will be focusing on Folkboat, a project which brilliantly combines his two greatest passions – music and sailing. Then in September he’ll return to the stage as Show of Hands prepare for a busy autumn.
