Saturday 14th April 2018


Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with ‘Show of Hands’, is returning to her roots. With a career spanning over 20 years (during which time she has played with many high-profile folk musicians and singers), 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, seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years. With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself, Sykes interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with us all.

Miranda says, “The themes of ‘Borrowed Places’ are not specific; the land changes, it grows, it shrinks, it adapts and it resists, but most of all it lives and breathes. I’m really proud of the album and I can’t wait to showcase it on my upcoming solo tour.”

“Emotionally engaging, these clearly enunciated and beautifully expressed songs with their deftly executed musical accompaniment constitute a truly enchanting package.” The Living Tradition

Miranda will be bringing her unique brand of magic to a string of village halls, folk clubs and venues throughout the country in early 2018. Tickets for ‘Borrowed Places’ are on sale now.

Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar : 8pm

Two time BBC Folk Award winners Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar met in 2011. Soon after the joining of the pair, the duo were signed to Fellside Records and in July 2012 released their debut album, The Queen’s Lover. Numerous tours followed as the duo developed and honed their stage craft, becoming one of the most sought after young acts on the English Folk Scene. “The press coverage and folk club reports have been glowing and rightly so” (R2 Magazine).

In January 2013, the pair picked up the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk award. Following the award win, Russell and Algar toured the country in April and, after completing school and University Exams in May, began touring again at the beginning of June - a schedule which saw them play venues and festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival and Fairport’s Cropredy Convention as well as appearing live on Mark Radcliffe’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.

After recording their second album in the November of 2013, again with Fellside, Russell and Algar received the Horizon Award for Best breakthrough act at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. The second album, The Call, was then released in July receiving 5 Stars in fRoots, 4 Stars in both R2 Magazine and The Telegraph and a host of other brilliant reviews, Bright Young Folk describing it as an “outstanding show of maturity” with “enormous promise”.

They released their third album, 'The Silent Majority', to critical acclaim in March 2016.

The duo come from musical households and both began to develop their musical skills long before joining forces. Algar, originally a member of TRI became All Ireland Champion, and All Britain Champion on numerous occasions before the age of 16 and Russell had begun a career as a solo musician supporting acts such as Karine Polwart and Lau, amongst others.
