PHIL BEER and ALICE JONES live Folk at Yellow Arch Studios
Powered Flight Music with Firebrand Music is very excited to bring Phil Beer to Sheffield for an intimate solo performance.
Charming, disarming and exceptionally talented, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene. One-half of award-winning powerhouse Show of Hands, Beer is equally as in demand for his solo shows. In early 2019 Phil sets out to share some of his most-loved songs at carefully selected venues across the UK. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more.
Sharing the bill in this double - header night of superb soloists is Alice Jones.
Alice is a folk singer, multi-instrumentalist and dancer from Ripponden in West Yorkshire. She sings mainly traditional English and American folk songs accompanying herself on piano, harmonium, tenor guitar and sometimes only body or foot percussion. Alice also plays the clarinet, whistle and her dance specialises in Appalachian clogging as well as other forms of percussive and traditional folk dance.
