Scion of English-folk royal family, re-inventing contemporary pop music from a traditional viewpoint.
Winner of innumerable accolades, Eliza Carthy has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Nick Cave, Billy Bragg and Bob Neuwirth. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, boundary-crossing performances. She grew up immersed in the world of traditional music and still divides her time between touring and recording with her legendary parents, Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson as well as engaging in numerous solo and band projects including the groundbreaking Imagined Village, which boldly re-examined the concept of what constitutes an English musical identity in the multicultural 21st century. Eliza Carthy describes herself simply as a modern English musician, which, as she proves, covers a lot of ground.
