The monthly folk music concert at The Barn in Baston will be held on Thursday.

Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston will share the stage to perform well-chosen, timeless covers interweaved with a few of Rex Preston’s originals.

Originally from Spalding, Miranda holds her audience spellbound with the emotional quality of her voice. She now enjoys an international recognition as the third member of Show of Hands, is an accomplished singer in her own right and one of the few female double bassists in England.

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.

Their backgrounds, unusual but brilliant pairing of double bass and mandolin and warm engaging vocals have shaped this unique sound.

The concert starts at 8pm and tickets are £10 from Alan or Maggie on 01778 560497.
