NOTE: the date in our March/April issue is incorrect – Miranda is visiting Broseley in March, not April.
Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and double bassist with folk stalwarts Show of Hands, returns to the musical arena this year with a new album and UK tour. After a career spanning over 20 years, during which she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, Miranda will be touring as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar – and she’s bringing her intimate solo show to Broseley’s Birchmeadow on Thursday 7 March at 7pm.
Building on the success of her Borrowed Places tour, Miranda Sykes is back with a completely new project: her new album Behind the Wall. Where Borrowed Places opened a window into the past, explaining where she had been, physically and spiritually, her new album is an exploration of where we’re all going, together. She explores themes around what it means to be human today, living in our communities and societies, and where our actions will lead us.
