Miranda Sykes, singer and bassist with Show of Hands, is returning to her roots with a solo tour that stops off in Ely in 2018.

After a career spanning over 20 years and having played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring as she started out: one woman, one bass, and one guitar.

Miranda’s debut solo album ‘Borrowed Places’ draws its inspiration from the songs and landscape of her native Lincolnshire but seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years.

The show will include previously unheard tracks from her forthcoming album due for release in 2019.

Miranda plays Ely Folk Club, The Old Dispensary, from 8pm on Wednesday January 17.
