PHIL ON STAGE AT 7.45pm

UNRESERVED SEATING

Phil is best known for his multi-instrumental wizardry as one half of England’s top acoustic roots duo Show Of Hands.

 

The Phil Beer Band perform a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.

 

The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn, Emily Slade and of course, Phil Beer - and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.

 

“Always worth a trip to see musicians of this quality - but it is the repertoire that makes a Phil Beer Band gig extra special!” (Folk Radio UK)

 

The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands) Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.

 

Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates.

 

“An evening with The Phil Beer Band is fast, frenetic, feel-good and leavened with a good helping of humour!” (fRoots Magazine)
