Musicport takes to the road in half-term ... where it says free entry there will be a bucket collection
Hometown gig for Eliza with her big band playing a lot of new material from their highly anticipated new album Big Machine.
‘..the lady who kick-started the still remarkably healthy contemporary British folk scene is celebrating in style’
***** The Guardian, Live Review
"… The audience don’t want it to end. And it shouldn’t end.
This should be a show we can always have – ripping the roof off a marquee at the end of festivals. Because when Eliza Carthy
is at her best there’s no one better. And this is Eliza Carthy at her best.”
FRoots, Live Review
A celebration of Norma Waterson (winner of this year's Lifetime Achievement Award in Radio 2 Folk Awards) with an all-star cast of family and friends including, of course, Norma herself.
guest confirmed so far include PEGGY SEEGER, THE GIFT BIG BAND ,LYNCHED , STICK IN THE WHEEL, THE FURROW COLLECTIVE, JIM CAUSLEY, EMILY PORTMAN, HARDEEP SINGH KOHLI & DJ DOLPHIN BOY.
The duo who have lived up to all their early promise ( which was so evident at their first Musicport appearance in 2007) return to the cafe where we first saw them as they begin a year that will see them reach yet greater heights.
