Friday 4th October, 7pm @ Town Hall
Glastonbury Town Council are pleased to announce A Night with Steve Knightley as their first arranged event. Tickets are available from Eventbrite
This is an exciting opportunity to see Steve Knightley, who is the songwriting force behind the phenomenally successful acoustic roots duo Show of Hands, as well as being a fine singer and musician.
From a rock background, Knightley is known for his strong narrative songs (many inspired by people and places in his native West Country) and cogent, inventive lyrics. His rock style rant Country Life and anthemic rally call Roots were both nominated for Best Original Song in the BBC Radio2 Folk Awards, whilst Show of Hands have won the categories Best Live Act and Best Duo. At the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Steve won the coveted Best Original Song category with his topical and widely acclaimed song aimed at bankers and MPs – Arrogance Ignorance and Greed. Steve’s 2010 solo appearances include Glastonbury and Larmer Tree festivals.
