MIRANDA SYKES & REX PRESTON

WINCHELSEA: Church of St Thomas the Martyr

FRI 9TH MAY, 2014 Doors 7pm Concert 7.30 pm

MIRANDA SYKES & REX PRESTON have a unique connection - which is a pleasure to listen to and plain to see when they share a stage together.

MIRANDA SYKES is well known as the third member of SHOW OF HANDS. She is one of the few female double bassists in England & is an accomplished singer in her own right. Miranda holds her audience spellbound: it is the emotional quality of her voice that makes her musical partnership with Rex so engaging, rather than the novelty of such an unusual musical pairing as the double bass & mandolin.

REX PRESTON has a reputation as a fine & imaginative mandolin player and is a leading light in a new wave of British Bluegrass musicians. He is a rising star in mandolin-playing circles and with 20 years of playing behind him, he possesses a wonderfully sensitive musicality and a dexterous, flamboyant playing style.

The rare fusion of double bass & mandolin makes for one of the most exciting new pairings on the acoustic roots scene. Miranda & Rex interweave timeless, well chosen covers with one or two Preston originals. Their backgrounds, as well as skilful instrumentation & warm engaging vocals have shaped their unique sound.
