Show of Hands in Session

Mark presents an hour of the best folk and acoustic music and hosts a live performance from roots band Show of Hands.

An hour of the best folk and acoustic music from Britain and beyond.

This week, West Country roots band Show of Hands join Mark in our Salford studio and perform songs from their new album, The Long Way Home.

Steve Knightley, Phil Beer and Miranda Sykes have collected three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, sold out the Royal Albert Hall multiple times, and recorded 15 studio albums.

The Long Way Home is the first release since their 2014 project, Centenary: Words and Music of the Great War, for which they collaborated with the actors Imelda Stanuton and Jim Carter.
