Event Type

Miranda will tell us, with humour and song, how she discovered her family history through a forebear deported to Australia for sheep-stealing a couple of hundred years ago. But how do you feel if the uncomfortable truth you discover has repercussions which have persisted to the present day?

Love, loss, jealousy, betrayal, revenge…often funny, sometimes poignant, occasionally shocking. Miranda presents a set of original songs based around some of the more bizarre stories unearthed from her family history.

A darkly humorous talk which includes 5 original songs plus a slideshow.
