Phil Beer brings his solo tour to the Castle Theatre next week as part of his String Theory tour.

Beer is one half of the multi award-winning acoustic folk and roots powerhouse Show of Hands and he’s also in demand in his own right as a solo performer.

When a musician’s CV drops names like Mike Oldfield, the Rolling Stones and Steve Harley, you know you’re dealing with a man at the top of his game. Alongside some Show of Hands classics, Phil will deliver his signature interpretation of much-loved folk and rock songs alongside a wealth of brand-new material.

He said: “2017 was such a busy year with the Albert Hall show, festivals and band tours. This year I’m looking forward to something a bit different. There’s something about a solo tour which makes me feel really connected with the audience. I’m also planning the release of a very special eight-disc box set and am looking forward to sharing new material from that.”

Following the tour, Phil will be focusing on ‘Folkboat’, a project which brilliantly combines his two greatest passions – music and sailing. Then in September he’ll return to the stage as Show of Hands prepare for a busy autumn.

Beer headlines the Wellingborough venue on Thursday, March 1. Doors 8pm. Tickets cost £15 before fees. Tickets are also on sale for Neil Riche’s Cool Jazz Collective who headline on March 15. Doors open at 8pm, tickets cost £14. Tickets for all forthcoming gigs are by calling 01933 270 007 or online.
