Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band
Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band released ‘Big Machine’ to critical acclaim in February 2017. The album is undoubtedly one of Eliza's most adventurous and accomplished works to date and their live show, which features a who’s who of names in the folk world, is equally as impressive, ambitious and exhilarating.
First assembled in 2013 by English traditional folk powerhouse Eliza to explore and celebrate her long and varied career in folk music, The Wayward Band represents a healthy slice of everything good that is happening in traditional music now.
