The Phil Beer Band was conceived as a ceilidh band back in the early 1990’s to provide music for a busy Gloucestershire village social life. It consisted of Phil Beer (Albion Band, Show of Hands), Simon Care (Albion Band and Edward the Second). Steve Crickett ( The Arizona Smoke Revue) and Nick Quarmby (The Dockery Boys, ColvinQuarmby).

The group progressed into playing local small gigs and gradually changed into a working band playing an annual tour and evolving from a folk rock band into what is now its signature ‘Folk and Roll’ sound. Gareth Turner replaced Simon Care and guitarist Charlotte Ayrton became a regular fixture for several years. A variety of front room and live recordings exist on various Phil Beer albums but the Band itself only ever made two Albums, ‘Mandorock’, and PBB ‘Live’.

The band has been through numerous line-ups over the years and played many short tours. In recent years, Phil’s commitments with Show of Hands and his busy studio life have made anything more than a token appearance each year impossible, until now------
In 2017. The band will undertake its first significant tour for a decade with a long overdue studio album.

The current line up consists of
Phil Beer
Steve Crickett
Gareth Turner
Emily Slade
Greg Mcdonald

Due to popular demand after a wonderful night last May which unbelievably was the Band’s first performance in Canterbury,  we are pleased to bring the superb Phil Beer Band to the Gulbenkian for Folk in the Barn.

Supporting The Phil Beer Band will be The Hawthornes
