Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston
7:30pm Sat 10 June at The Allendale Centre Minster Hall | £25.00
In the space of just a few years, Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston have become one of the most sought after duos on the English folk & roots scene.
The striking combination of the flame headed double bass player & virtuoso mandolin player create music that Folk Roots say is: “A musical partnership made in heaven. Scintillating, sensitive and brilliant!”
Well known for the last 10 years as a central component of Show of Hands, Miranda has an exquisite and spine-tingling voice, whilst Rex, with his exuberant and flamboyant playing style, has built a reputation as one of the finest mandolin players in the UK.
The duo are embarking on a tour of the British Isles supporting the launch of their 3rd album ‘The Watchmaker’s Wife’.
