Phil Beer at Lingfield VSSC, Victoria Sports & Social Club, Friday, 13. September 2019

Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler playing with Show Of Hands and in the all-star line-up Feast of Fiddles. He also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention his rich vocals.
Born in Exminster, he started to play fiddle, guitar and mandolin while still at school. He played his first gig at 14 and started working as a duo with Paul Downes in 1974. He was a member of the legendary Arizona Smoke Revue and a key member of Johnny Coppin’s band. He toured with Mike Oldfield and was a member of the feted Albion Band from 1984-1991. Show of Hands became a full-time partnership in the early 90s, a band that has gone on to sell out the Royal Albert Hall three times and who were voted Best Live Act, by the public, at the 2004 Folk Awards.
