Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band

Eliza Carthy with Sam Sweeney, David Delarre, Barn Stradling, Saul Rose, Beth Porter, Lucy Farrell, Willy Molleson, Andrew Waite Laurence Hunt, Nick Malcolm and Adrien “Yen-Yen” Toulouse.

The Wayward band is bursting with some of the finest players in recent times, including members of Bellowhead, Mawkin, Blowzabella, Edward II, Emily Portman Trio, Peatbog Fairies, Dreams of Tall Buildings & Tyde. Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band are recording a brand new album, due for release in October 2016. The record will feature traditional material, as well as classics from Eliza’s back catalogue and new tunes. A beacon of hope in these uncertain times.

“… the lady who kick-started the still remarkably healthy contemporary British folk scene is celebrating in style” (The Guardian).

Support from Marry Waterson and David Jaycock
