Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band

Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band

During a 20+-year journey/career she has become one of the most dazzling and recognised folk musicians of a generation. 

Eliza has assembled an 11 piece supergroup to make and perform Big Machine, her ninth album as singer/fiddler and bandleader.

The material on the album, which was produced by Jim Sutherland, represents a healthy slice of everything good that is happening in traditional music now, across a sparkling spectrum of sound.
