ELIZA CARTHY TO PERFORM AT ERT ON SUNDAY

Eliza Carthy will perform at the Beverley Fringe Concert at ERT this Sunday in a rare solo performance. She will be performing a short slot in the evening concert at the theatre, along with Edwina Hayes, The Hut People and Michael Chapman.

Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy is one of the most recognisable faces in British folk. Launching head-on into the scene in the early 90s, she quickly became one of its great innovators. She has spearheaded the re-emergence of English traditional music as a vibrant, exciting genre that could stand proudly next to other world music.

Eliza’s musical knowledge and ability are also well respected outside of the folk world: she has been a judge at both the Q Awards and the Ivor Novello Awards, and in 2005 co-presented the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards with Benjamin Zephaniah. Her achievements have been acknowledged with numerous BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, two Mercury Prize nominations, and in 2003 she was the first English traditional musician to be nominated for a BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music.
