ACCLAIMED folk singer Steve Knightley returns to The Hungry Horse folk club in Ellesmere Port as part of his solo tour later this month.

One of the country's greatest singer songwriters, the Exeter-based musician - perhaps better known as one half of folk group Show of Hands - brings his Songs and Stories - Part 2 - Roadworks to the club, located at the Whitby Club in Chester Road, Ellesmere Port on Thursday, February 21.

Exeter-based Knightley is prolific with his song-writing for both himself and his band ably assisted by his colleague and multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer and Miranda Sykes.

Show of Hands have played to massive audiences all over the UK with one of the principal venues being London's Royal Albert Hall, where the house-full signs have been displayed many times.

Steve is renowned for his strong, trademark narrative songs which reflect the escapades, hopes and fears not only of people in his native West Country but beyond and he pulls no punches when writing highly literate songs about bigger, global issues.

Mike Harding, formerly of BBC Radio 2, described Steve as "One of England's greatest singer songwriters".

The club organiser John Owen said: "We are absolutely delighted that Steve has once again chosen to bring his massive talents to our club.

"I am sure we are all in for a superb evening's entertainment".
