MIMíS NEW CD (article first published : 2005-06-20)

Miriam Backhouse, one of Europe's finest, gave up her solo career to marry John Erasmus and raise a family in South Africa.

"Mim and John" went on to do many functions for Durban Arts including the City Hall steps, and have since become much-loved household names in KZN where they have entertained audiences from 1 to 101. The songs she has written about South Africa's physical and political landscapes, are well-known and loved by all.

Recently returned from a successful season in the UK, she is now ranked among the best in the world, being in the same stable as Ralph McTell (Streets of London, Jacqui McShee's Pentangle and Bob Fox.

Her album Gypsy Without a Road on the Mother Earth label, will be re-released and a new CD is to be recorded in England in July this year to coincide with a huge come-back tour of the Festivals in 2006.

"I am a 'singer of stories' at heart," said Mim. "There are not many artists my age who get a second chance, and I'm going to give all my energy and a lot of love to this new venture."
