Miranda is known as the bass player and spine-tingling vocalist who has enriched the Show of Hands sound for the past decade. Former Scoville Units band member Rex is recognised as one of the finest young mandolin players in the UK.

They perform at Derby’s Guildhall on Thursday, May 14, at 7.30pm, as part of gigs in the UK. Their special guest will be New York-based guitarist Grant Gordy.
