MIMS BACK (article first published : 2007-06-27)

Miriam Erasmus has just returned from another successful UK tour. She is known overseas as Miriam Backhouse and her South African folk songs are becoming 'standards' for many UK artists. I use my art to explain the situation here in South Africa, its ups and downs and sheer breathtaking beauty, she says.

Miriam has worked hard to revive her career, and now has enough of a fan base over there for tours every year to come....some already booking in 2010! She will star in several folk festivals next year, including a concert as showcase artiste at Splashy Fen.

Having been spoilt by the respect shown to live artists on the British folk scene, Miriam is working on a tour of as many South African listening venues as possible. She would welcome names of any suitable venues. Contact her on 031 777 1669.
