Gordon Arms gig

Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston join forces to perform for Folk@The Gordon Arms this Sunday.

Miranda is well known as the third member of Show of Hands. She is one of the few female double bassists in England and is an accomplished singer in her own right.

Meanwhile, Rex Preston has a reputation as a fine and imaginative mandolin player and is a leading light in a new wave of British bluegrass musicians.

A spokesperson for the pair said: “Rex is a rising star in mandolin-playing circles, with 20 years of playing behind him.”
