Well known for the last 8 years as a central component of Show of Hands, Miranda has an exquisite and spine-tingling voice. Since 2010 Miranda has also been part of a duo with Rex Preston, who with his exuberant and flamboyant playing style, has built a reputation as one of the finest mandolin players in the UK, making them one of the most sought after duos on the English folk & roots scene.
2017 will also see Miranda embarking on a major solo tour.

Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with 'Show of Hands' is returning to her roots. After a career spanning over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar. Borrowed Places is a project that draws its inspiration primarily from the songs and landscapes of her native Lincolnshire but seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years. The themes are not specific; the land changes, it grows, it shrinks, it adapts and it resists but most of all it lives and breathes. With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself, Miranda interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with us all, wherever we live and it is one you won't want to miss.
