NO-ONE will have travelled further to perform in Milton Keynes this weekend, for sure.

Miriam Backhouse, right, will have a heck of a journey home too – all the way back to South Africa.

The lady has a gentle style and wonderful voice that has seen her favourably compared to Joan Baez, and ranked alongside Maddy Prior.

But listen to the lady in her own right – ‘her voice will haunt you forever’ say those bringing her back to The Song Loft for the first time in two years.

A sell-out is expected for this one, and advance purchase is always best in these situations.

Drop an email to or you’ll have to chance your luck on the doors.

Tickets are £7 and doors open at 8.15pm.

>AT the Bletchley Workingmen’s Club, MK Divided host live music from Texas Tornados this Sunday evening.
