15th Dec 2012 - 8:00pm

The Arts Centre

Routes Music present vocalist, double-base & mandolin musician Miranda Sykes and Jane on Thunder’s Rex Preston in the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £10.00 / £8.00 concessions

Miranda’s rich, spine tingling vocals and strident yet sensitive double bass playing are much in demand and she enjoys working alongside some of the finest musicians in the world.

Miranda has been described as a ‘musical chameleon’ reflecting the way that she so easily slips between musical genres as diverse as folk, jazz and rock/pop. She continues to build a repertoire of contemporary and narrative songs that are showcased to critical acclaim in her most recent, unique collaboration with Rex Preston. The unusual pairing of double bass and mandolin, has a timeless feel and universal appeal.

Rex Preston was last seen on the folk & acoustic scene when his band Jane on Thunder reached the final of The BBC Young Folk Awards. Since then he has been building a strong portfolio of electronic music.
