If there is one musician who embodies the dynamism and vitality of the English folk scene, it’s Eliza Carthy MBE.  Beloved of staunch traditionalists and iconoclasts alike, Eliza’s music effortlessly crosses boundaries of genre and style. Whether solo or fronting a big band, performing a centuries-old ballad or a self-written song, have influenced a whole generation of young musicians. 

The daughter of folk legends Martin Carthy & Norma Waterson, Eliza was championed from an early age by John Peel, Andy Kershaw and Billy Bragg. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize, and winner of innumerable other accolades over her thirty-year career, Eliza has performed and recorded around the world with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus & Martha Wainwright, Patrick Wolf, and Jarvis Cocker. 

Tonight she goes solo, showcasing her powerful, nuanced voice, fiercely beautiful fiddle-playing and effervescent on-stage presence.  Describing herself simply as a modern English musician, she is one of the most impressive, engaging, and important performers of her generation.

Support for this show comes from Jenn Reid.

Jenn performs 19th-century Lancashire dialect work songs, Manchester broadside ballads and clog steps. She played Barb in Shane Meadows’ critically acclaimed period drama The Gallows Pole on the BBC. Eliza says: “I am so pleased and excited to be touring with the incendiary Jenn Reid on this tour. Since I heard of her at Chetham’s Library in Manchester, working with the broadside collections, I have wanted to experience her visceral, natural approach to traditional song.”
