Mirah brings her dynamic mixture of folk-tinged pop, epic western balladry and klezmer waltzes to Norwich Arts Centre this Saturday, June 18.

With delicate, whispered vocals and lo-fi production techniques, Mirah's songs favour intimacy and eclecticism and manage to incorporate foghorns, autoharp and the ukulele.

Currently living in Oregon, Mirah released her first album, Storageland in 1997 before joining the roster of other artists on the K record label in 1999.

Several albums, You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This, Advisory Committee and Songs from the Black Mountain Music Project have since been released by Mirah on K. She will be performing songs from her forthcoming album, C'mon Miracle, released on July 11 courtesy of the arrivederci baby! label.

Support comes from Charlotte Morris, one of the best singer-songwriters in Norwich, plus Casio-led indie pop from Grand Prix '86.
