Show of Hands enter the UK Album Chart at No. 70
Congratulation to Show of Hands who entered the UK Album Chart at number 70 this week with their latest album The Long Way Home. This is their highest ever chart position and second top 75 album following on from their 2012 album Wake the Union which reached number 73. The new album also entered the Independent Album Chart at number 9 and the Indie Album Breakers Chart at number 1.
Travelling full circle to the songs and tunes that inspired them to start playing as a duo back in 1991, The Long Way Home revisits all the classic ingredients of traditional folk themes – songs of war, exile, seafaring and loves lost and found.
This is music from the heart and history of England. From the haunting to the heart-breaking, the nautical to the rural, it distils influences old and new but always with that unmistakable Show of Hands sound.
