16th September 2022 – 20.00 to 22.00
In this exciting new collaboration from two of British folk’s finest voices, Miranda Sykes (Show of Hands) and Hannah Martin (Edgelarks, Gigspanner Big Band) join forces to present a set of songs that take them back to their shared roots.
Miranda and Hannah have spent many years playing on the British folk scene, but neither has ever dedicated an entire set to traditional song. 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; and two mesmerising storytellers joining voices to create a spine-tingling testimonial to our shared musical heritage.
ACE Space team were somewhat chuffed to be one of the venues chosen to be part of the debut tour of this new duo two years ago but then lockdown happened. The rescheduled tour for September last year had to be cancelled so fingers crossed for this year. Hannah will be familiar to the ACE Space rregulars having appeared twice with Philip Henry (Edgelarks). Miranda will be well known to any followers of Show Of Hands.
Start: 8:00pm (Doors Open 7:30)
