Hannah Martin & Miranda Sykes Spring Tour Dates

Feb 15, 2024

Having played together on numerous occasions, including in Steve Knightley’s Wake the Union Band, and at the Royal Albert Hall, Miranda Sykes and  Martin knew that they shared an instinctive ear for harmony and skilled instrumental improvisation.

A sociable Devon winter evening led to an exchange of songs; which proved to be so much fun that they soon arranged another musical get together. Swiftly these became rehearsal sessions, as a strong new sound emerged. Miranda and Hannah have spent many years playing on the British folk scene, and their project is centred around their deep knowledge of roots music, and a love of harmony singing. They bring together old songs with new ideas; ancient tales with bass, fiddle, and banjo.

Miranda and Hannah have spent many years playing on the British folk scene they bring together old songs with new ideas; ancient tales with bass, fiddle, and banjo; and two mesmerising storytellers joining voices to create a spine-tingling testimonial to our shared musical heritage.
