Phil Beer played Milverton on April 19th 2019 (support from Velvet and Stone)

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  and there'll be the odd laugh thrown in for good measure.

Phil Beer

This titan of English music played at Milverton Music and it was a pleasure to  welcome him back to our club. This was an evening not to be missed with one of the most talented musicians on the scene. It sold out very quickly.

Velvet & Stone's brand of female-fronted, indie-folk combines haunting soundscapes with catchy pop hooks and great songs - giving an original take on a traditional genre. Crafting their live set on the festival circuit with performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Larmer Tree and Somersault, among many others.
It was a real pleasure to welcome two of the band,
Lara Snowdon on guitar and vocals with Kathryn Tremlett on violin for their first visit to Milverton Music Club.
