MIRANDA SYKES & REX PRESTON : 8pm

2016 'The Watchmaker's Wife' Tour

The duo are embarking on a tour of the British Isles supporting the much awaited launch of their 3rd album 'The Watchmaker's Wife'.

In the space of just a few years, Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston have emerged to 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.



Their stunning performance brings precision, delight, wonder and warmth to their live shows.
