Roots – The best of Show of Hands

As well as The Imagined Village I have also been listening to folk group Show of Hands recently. I remember seeing them at a local Folk Festival years ago, and they were very good. They are also playing at this years Shrewsbury Folk Festival alongside  Bellowhead, The Imagined Village, Cara Dillon and many others. Should be great fun 😀
