Subject: RE: Arrogance Ignorance.....and Silence
I quite like Show of Hands. I've seen them a few times and have enjoyed them. For the beneifit of Songbob, SOH are a 'duo' from Devon who write and sing some pretty good protest songs about the state of England as they see it.

Miranda Sykes joined the band a few years ago to play the bass. In my opinion she's the best thing in it. I saw her a few years ago (forget who with) and have liked her for some time.

There is a lot of doubt now as to whether the band is a duo or a trio. They won the Radio 2 folk award for Best Duo last year, though Miranda has been with them for at least 3 years.
