Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with ‘Show of Hands’ returns in 2019 with a new album and UK tour.

Musically, she’s asking where we all are going; but the good news is, as far as she’s concerned she really seems to know.

In fact, Miranda has a date at The Palace Theatre in Redditch this March, and that is firmly on the tour map.

A spokesman said: “After a career spanning over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring solo as she started out: One woman, one bass, and one guitar.

“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, Behind The Wall is a Roller Coaster Ride exploring where we are going: Miranda, you, me, all of us.”

The spokesman added:” 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 show is not to be missed.”

Miranda was eight years old when she started playing double bass after being inspired in a school assembly.

Born in Spalding, Lincolnshire, she lived in the county until 2007 when she made her first move to Devon.

The spokesman said: "Coming from a musical family, folk music was always being played at home, and her summer holidays were spent at Sidmouth, Towersey and Cropredy Festivals."

Tickets for the show at the Palace Theatre, Redditch, on March 22 are available at redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk and 01527 6520.
