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 of the multi award-winning acoustic folk and roots powerhouse Show of Hands, and he’s also a captivating solo performer.
Phil’s returning to Broseley’s Birchmeadow as part of his String Theory tour, 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… with the odd laugh thrown in. Phil says, “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 box set and am looking forward to sharing new material from that.”
