Roadworks Ahead, Steve Knightley-style, or Steve Knightley announces 2019 solo tour ͚Roadworks͛As a long-serving troubadour of the folk and acoustic music scene, master songwriter and storyteller Steve Knightley has spent much of his life on the road, collecting songs, stories, anecdotes and observations – with the odd disaster along the way.

Best known for his work with the award-winning acoustic roots group Show of Hands, Steve has performed in venues from the Albert Hole in Bristol to the Albert Hall in London. His impressive back catalogue of songs are modern classics, still filling the folk clubs and festival fields, and forever influencing the next generation of folk artists.

In 2019, Steve once again takes to England͛s highways and byways to present ͚Roadworks͛–a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour ͚Songs and Stories͛. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that͛s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience. Anyone who͛s ever wondered what it͛s like to be a touring musician will love this rare insight into life on the road. Steve says, ͞A life on the road certainly has its challenges, but I can͛t say I͛d do it differently if I had to start all over again.

The format of ͚Songs and Stories͛, and now ͚Roadworks͛ allows me to share the stories I͛ve collected over the years, along with plenty of observations along the way. It͛s just me, a radio mic and a couple of guitars which is daunting and liberating in equal measures, and it͛s enabled me to build elements into my shows which I͛ve never been able to before. The reception from the 2018 tour was fantastic – it really seemed to strike a chord with people – so I͛m looking forward to 2019͛s tour.͟2018͛s tour was a sell-out, so early booking is advisable.
