ELIZA CARTHY & THE WAYWARD BAND

plus support MARRY WATERSON & DAVID A JAYCOCK

Hometown gig for Eliza with her big band playing a lot of new material from their highly anticipated new album Big Machine.

“Yorkshire’s finest, the rich-voiced Eliza Carthy was in full, ebullient flight as she opened in plaintive form with a lullaby, accompanied only by fiddle and melodeon, and went on to deliver old favourites such as Worcester City and Cold Blow, as well as a calypso learned from her mother, delivered with a wit and rumbustious panache which suited the full-blown band.”

The Scotsman, Live Review

‘It’s a proud career CV but more importantly it stands powerfully alone on its own considerable merits – vibrant, modern and relevant’

FRoots Magazine

‘Her vision remains absolutely faithful to the story and expresses the song’s essential emotions. She accomplishes this with wit and exuberance – And this is her genius.. Every home should have a wayward daughter’

***** Songlines Magazine

‘A more fearsome performer than mum or dad, or indeed anyone else on the folk scene she’s helped to galvanise...a rich primer of a singular career’

Uncut

‘Headstrong, determined, incorrigible and irreverent, Eliza Carthy did more than anyone to revoluntionise and rid English folk music of staid cliche ridden images’

Mojo

‘Whatever she addresses she does so with warmth, intelligence and crate loads of personality’

Marry Waterson returned in 2015 with her album 'Two Wolves', written in collaboration with David A. Jaycock. The songs cover a wide range of subject material from laments about disappearing village communities (Hoping To Be Saved) to the title track’s reflection on the duality of human nature. You can catch Marry and David supporting Eliza Carthy on tour around the UK this month, see the full list of dates here (http://marrywaterson.com/live). You can also watch the fantastic video for 'The Honey & The Seaweed', animated by Marry herself, here. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JlkdxVLCqg).
