In the space of 2 short 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 8 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. With Show of Hands off the road for a year, the duo are embarking on an extensive tour of the British Isles in support of their arresting new CD “Sing A Full Song”.
 
"A musical partnership made in heaven. Scintillating, sensitive and brilliant." - fROOTS
 
"I love this album. Miranda's a fantastic bass player but this really brings her great voice out into the foreground.. A real cracker."
- MIKE HARDING
 
"Rex Preston is one of the new generation of brilliant virtuoso instrumentalists raising the bar. A tremendous player."
- PHIL BEER, SHOW OF HANDS
 
"From the first few notes you know that this is something special." - FOLKING.COM
 
"It is however with Miranda's almost ethereal vocal performance on Imogen Heap's "Between Sheets" that makes the listener sit up and listen."
