Show of Hands: 'Special Relationship' Tour

with special guest Richard Shindell 

Show of Hands join forces with long-term friend and collaborator Richard Shindell to present their very own transatlantic ‘Special Relationship’ show this spring. Hailing from New Jersey and now a resident of Buenos Aires, Shindell writes flawless, vivid songs that paint pictures and tell stories. Along with a selection of their own material, Steve and Phil will join Richard to add their sparkle on songs such as ‘You Stay Here’, ‘Reunion Hill’ and ‘Next Best Western’. From the Great War to the Civil War, from Bristol to Baltimore, expect a moving Anglo/American exchange of songs of the road, history and the heart.
