The Watchmaker's Wife - Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston
For our LCM featured artists today are the excellent Devon based duo of Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston. In the space of a few short years, Miranda & Rex have emerged to become one of the most sought after duos on the English folk & roots scene. The striking combination of the flame headed double bass player & virtuoso mandolin player create music that Folk Roots say is: “A musical partnership made in heaven. Scintillating, sensitive and brilliant!” Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a live version of the wonderful title song from their 2016 album 'The Watchmaker's Wife'.
Well known for the last 8 years as a central component of Show of Hands, Miranda has an exquisite and spine-tingling voice, whilst Rex, with his exuberant and flamboyant playing style, has built a reputation as one of the finest mandolin players in the UK.
2016 saw Miranda and Rex celebrate their 6th year together as a duo and the release of their 3rd studio album.
