Sidmouth FolkWeek band to appear on Andrew Marr Show

POPULAR Sidmouth FolkWeek headliners, Show of Hands, will make a live appearance on Sunday’s Andrew Marr Show on BBC 1.

Singer, songwriter Steve Knightley, instrumentalist Phil Beer and vocalist/double bass player Miranda Sykes, will perform Steve’s award-winning Arrogance Ignorance and Greed, the title track of their last album.

It blasts bankers and bonuses and MP’s expenses and was voted best original song in BBC Radio 2’s Folk Awards for 2010.

With MP’s being convicted of expenses fraud and jailed, Knightley says: “It seems to be a song that is constantly refreshing itself.”

The show goes out between 9-10am.
