Well known for the last 12 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.
Since 2017 Miranda has also been touring solo as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar.

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 is touring as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar. Building on the success of her 'Borrowed Places' and 'Behind The Wall' projects, 2020 brings 'Out of the Wood'.|
Miranda explains "Life is many faceted; like most people I've had good times and hard times. I've taken some forks in the road I shouldn't have done and I've had some knocks, but its all part of who I am now. I am blessed that I feel that I am in a place where my 'planets are aligning' and I am at peace with myself and my place in the world. 'Out Of The Woods' reflects this journey, with its ups and downs, through a collection of powerful and personal songs, sung from the heart that I would like to share with you."
