The UnTangled Tour
Tanglefoots dynamic rhythm and harmony guys are back together again!
They rocked the folk/roots music scene as the rhythm section of TANGLEFOOT, one of Canadas hardest working bands with a bold vocal sound and a relentless tour schedule across Canada, the US & Britain matched only by their rampaging onstage energy.
Im so excited. My good friends from Canada, Steve Ritchie, Al Parrish and Rob Ritchie, latterly of iconic Canadian supergroup TANGLEFOOT are touring the UK in 2013.
Since the Tanglefoots retirement in late 2009 all three have branched out in different directions...writing, broadcasting, solo performing. Now the three compatriots have re-connected as R-P-R which allows them the opportunity to indulge in musical whims inside and outside the frame of their former band identity, creating a memorable experience of arresting music, stories, laughter and reminiscence. And whether its an original song of Als, or Steves recollection of a Robert Plant version of an old Dylan tune, or Robs incisive musical humour, all the trademark harmony, the chemistry, the enthusiasm, the impact of Tanglefoot ...is all there. So are some of the songs (after all, they did write quite a few between them), but with an expanded vision that youll love.
Ritchie-Parrish-Ritchie is a powerhouse trio, now moving forward from the Tanglefoot days without leaving the high energy and the spirit behind. Its old songs, new songs, borrowed songs...some you will no doubt remember, and some will be new.
If you been missing TANGLEFOOT, youll love Ritchie-Parrish-Ritchie.
If youve never heard of TANGLEFOOT (where have you been?) youll love Ritchie-Parrish-Ritchie anyway. Stylish songs, stunning arrangements, great musicianship - and those massive vocal harmonies - all delivered with good humour and a sense of fun.

21 THE “HAND IN HAND” TOUR – AUTUMN 2013
If you haven’t heard of Show of Hands by now, where have you been!
Celebrating a 21 year musical partnership, singer songwriter Steve Knightley and multi instrumentalist Phil Beer have sold out the Royal Albert Hall four times and are triple winners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (Best Duo, Best Original Song, Best Live Act). Joined by musical chameleon Miranda Sykes on double bass they have become one of the acoustic roots scene’s major players, widely recognised for their resonating original songs, slick musicianship and audience rapport – featuring on BBC TV’s Countryfile, BBC Breakfast and Andrew Marr shows and regularly played by the likes of Bob Harris, Mark Radcliffe and Simon Mayo.
Following a summer of key UK festival headline appearances and a tour of Germany the genre-defying band return to the UK this autumn for the “Hand in Hand” tour – for the first time ever Steve, Phil and Miranda will be their own support act – performing three songs apiece in the opening set to showcase their myriad individual talents, before joining forces for the unique Show of Hands experience after the interval.

ALY BAIN (Scotland), ALE MÖLLER (Sweden) & BRUCE MOLSKY (USA) - THE TRIO
Aly Bain received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" at this years BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He is Scotland’s supreme traditional style fiddler. His playing is unique, driving, impassioned and pure, with a vibrant, unmistakable tone that has earned him a following of ardent fans throughout the world. His most recent collaboration with Swedish multi-instrumentalist, Ale Möller, created the album “Fully Rigged” a celebration of shared Nordic heritage. Completing the line-up is Bruce Molsky, who has also explored traditional music from an astonishingly broad range of cultures over the past two decades.
Aly Bain, although his musical base is firmly in Scotland, his extensive travels have led to an appreciation and mastery of many kinds of fiddle music. He was awarded the MBE for services to folk music, has an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Music by the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, and is the Musical Director of the legendary TV series “Transatlantic Sessions”.
Ale Möller, found his roots in Swedish folk music by way of first falling in love with the sounds of Greece. En route he became a master of the bouzouki and a multi-instrumentalist with a lot of different flutes in his belt. Ale has been a front member of bands like Filarfolket, Enteli and Nordan and he still tours the world with the trio Frifot.
Bruce Molsky, is one of the most influential old-time fiddlers around. He is also a remarkable guitarist, banjoist and singer - with skill, a varied and deep repertoire, a reverence for the past, a healthy curiosity about music outside old-time, and a relaxed, conversational wit that draws listeners in as if they were sitting in his living room.
A rare treat for traditional music lovers.

Winner of ‘BEST ALBUM’ at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards
‘Surely the best live act in the country’ … The Independent
Since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain’s musical landscape: a blistering 11-piece band fusing folk, funk, rock, world, jazz, music hall and classical music, they have placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while harnessing all the power and mystery of ancient English and European musical traditions.
Their third album, ‘Hedonism’, was the highest-selling independently-released traditional folk album of all time, sold a staggering 60,000 copies and was awarded a ‘Silver Disc’. And their new album ‘Broadside’ entered the UK album charts at number 16, spawned an A-listed single on BBC Radio 2 and won ‘Best Album’ at the 2013 Folk Awards.
Yet it’s still their explosive, spectacular and theatrical live shows that win them the most acclaim. 5-times winner of ‘Best Live Band’ at the Radio 2 Awards, they have transported folk music into hitherto unknown territory and spearheaded the new folk boom.
They are “the greatest live act in Britain” says BBC Radio 2’s Simon Mayo and the hordes of dancing fans grinning and singing along and treating every gig as a party clearly agree.
Bellowhead hit the road in November for a 17 date tour of theatres and venues across the country.
