Miranda Sykes has been performing with Show of Hands since 2004, augmenting their unique sound with her powerful double bass and rich harmonies. In this time the band have moved on from their folk duo image, and evolved into a hard hitting acoustic band, selling out UK and European tours and headlining some of the biggest festivals across the world.
As well as being a superb vocalist and double bassist she continues to surprise audiences with her musical versatility, and demonstrates her ability as a guitarist and interpreter of song, slipping effortlessly between genres.
In 2009 Miranda formed a duo with Rex Preston, a stunning partnership that toured for 8 years and produced the acclaimed ‘The Watchmakers Wife’. Miranda is about to return to her roots touring as she started out: one woman, one bass & one guitar. Her new album “Borrowed Places” will be out on May 1st 2017 & she will be on tour from then.
