The Band Company have been at it again, Liz and Gabi have put together another video of our lovely Parish to mark Miranda Sykes, Rex Preston and very special guest Rex Preston’s visit to our village next week.
The inspirational melding of musical chameleon Miranda Sykes and mandolin maestro Rex Preston has produced one of the most unexpected and exciting new pairings on the acoustic roots scene. With an enviable pedigree, Miranda is known as the stand-out bass player and spine-tingling vocalist who has brilliantly enriched the Show of Hands sound for the past nine years while former Scoville Units band member Rex is recognised as one of the finest young mandolin players in the UK.
Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston have emerged to become one of the most sought after duos on the English folk & roots scene.
For just a few dates on the 2015 tour Miranda and Rex will be joined by American guitarist, the internationally acclaimed Grant Gordy, this exciting trio are set to deliver a unique and memorable performance right here in Hernhill.
