Miranda Sykes has very kindly given us this CD for our competition. Now, I do know Miranda quite well, and knew this CD was coming, but when I sat down to listen to it, I was left with goose pimples.
If you don't win - I recommend you buy it!
Miranda's tour starts next week (Wednesday 5th May) in Spalding

Folk UK Radio say : "Amongst the very best. Everything about this album oozes quality"
Winner : Martin Meggs
They are an English acoustic duo that like to have fun with American music; weaving together mandolin and guitar and singing songs of heartache and longing. Their music is sometimes joyful, sometimes wistful; steeped in the American tradition and all that comes with it - from fiddle tunes to folk songs, from driving instrumentals and gentle ballads; some traditional, some self-penned. We love it
Winner : Mary Kane
