Lawns Hotel, Chellaston
Miranda Sykes is the acclaimed singer and bassist with ‘Show of Hands’. Her musical career has spanned over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world. Currently taking time away from her schedule during Autumn/Winter 2018, to be with her family and new baby, she will be back touring in Spring 2019 - the way she originally started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar.
Miranda will return with a completely new project Behind The Wall, which builds on the success of her 2017 album tour Borrowed Places. Where Borrowed Places opened a window into the past, explaining where she had been, physically and spiritually, Behind The Wall is a ‘roller coaster ride’ exploring where we are going - Miranda, you, me, all of us. What does it mean to be human today, living in our communities and societies and where will our actions lead us?
Powerful and hard hitting, but also poignant and beautiful, this album gives us all a chance to reflect and even empower ourselves. With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself on double bass and guitar - Miranda takes her audience on a musical journey, that presents and encourages us to look at how we live and share our lives and our hopes for our future - this will undoubtedly resonate with us all and it is one you won’t want to miss!
