Eliza Carthy & The Restitution: 30th Anniversary Tour

Doors 7:30 pm

Price £25 + booking fee / £29 on the door

March 2022 marks the 30th career anniversary of outstanding English folk musician and President of the EFDSS, Eliza Carthy MBE.

To mark this significant milestone, this Spring sees the first of her four X 4 track staggered Queen Of The Whirl EP releases with her band The Restitution – with some fantastic re-recordings of some of her ‘greatest hits’ from past 30 years, including some from her three Mercury Award nominated albums. Three further EPs will be released episodically throughout the summer, culminating in a glorious collector’s item display box featuring a memory and photo-filled book.

Eliza Carthy turned pro (or quit college, depending on if you ask her or her dear departed mam) in March 1992. Since then, she has toured all over the world; danced with Hugh Masekele in Ghana; crossed the Prairies, the Alps and the waters of Lake Titicaca, all for the sake of playing the fiddle and spreading the word of English traditional music.

Queen Of The Whirl is her celebration of thirty years of silliness and profundity, with a crack team of musicians made up of her colleagues and counterparts. Thirty years of music reimagined, from Billy Bragg to Peggy Seeger, from The Ratcatchers to Imagined Village, from bloody boots in Trafalgar Square to the moors of North Yorkshire, and everywhere in between. It’s been quite a ride. Join us!

‘Eliza and her acolytes continue to be rarely less than a set of challenging, thought provoking and out of the box musicians’ – Louder than War
