Eliza Carthy Trio, with Saul Rose and David Delarre

Fri 16 July, 20:00
£17.50

The “seriously impressive” (Telegraph) folk legend, revered for her mesmerising live performances, rich and powerful vocal set and fiercely beautiful fiddle-playing, graces the Grand Junction stage. 

Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy herself is one of the most recognisable faces of the English folk revival. The daughter of a folk dynasty (her father is Martin Carthy and her mother Norma Waterson), twice nominated for the Mercury Prize, winner of number BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and with an MBE for services to folk, Eliza has performed with artists including, Paul Weller and Rufus Wainwright.

With her charismatic and boundary-crossing performance, she has spearheaded the re-emergence of English traditional music as a vibrant, exciting genre that could stand proudly next to other world music.
