Acoustic Music from Phil Beer in St. Ives

Phil Beer is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as one half of the internationally acclaimed folk megastars Show of Hands, 2010 winners of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for Best Duo and Best Song “Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed.”

However, not only is he a musician, songwriter, composer and producer, he is also a top flight fiddler in the all-star line-up, Feast of Fiddles, and his skills don’t stop there, he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing rich vocals.

Phil Beer is appearing at this special “one night only” gig to show his support for Gorsedh Kernow, Cornwall’s own Gorsedd, which exists to maintain the national Celtic spirit of Cornwall. This event is generously supported by The Painted Bird, St Ives and Harding Laity Estate Agents of St Ives.
