Eliza Carthy is a gifted musical conceptualist (the Goose knows exactly what that means, hope you do too, your starter for ten), confirming her position as, arguably, the most impressive and engaging performer of a generation.
OK you could say she was a bit lucky with her genes, but hey, she’s a truly inventive and innovative singer and fiddle-player!
Eliza is also the winner of an unrivalled seven BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. In 2003 she became the first traditional English musician to be nominated a BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music (for Anglicana).
She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performances.
