About

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.

Friday 17th April 2020 7:30pmMiranda 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 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."
