The launch of Wayward Daughter - and you're invited!

We are delighted to announce that Wayward Daughter: The official biography of Eliza Carthy will be launched at The Greystones pub in Sheffield on Tuesday May 22nd, courtesy of the wonderful Bright Phoebus folk club.
     Eliza will be signing copies of the book and answering fans’ questions, as well as singing and playing with some very special guests, including Bellowhead frontman, Jon Boden, long-term collaborator, Saul Rose, and the Bar Steward Sons Of Val Doonican (plus a few surprise appearances).
     It’s the kind of night where anything could - and probably will - happen.
You can buy your tickets here - but be quick, we know this is going to sell out rather quickly! We looking forward to seeing you, so tell us you're coming here.

Eliza Carthy is a modern English musician.

Since appearing at the Vancouver Folk Festival aged just thirteen, Eliza has sung and played across the globe, recording critically acclaimed albums – including Red Rice and Anglicana, which were both nominated for the Mercury Music Prize – and collaborating with a whole host of movers and shakers including Paul Weller, Cerys Matthews, Richard and Teddy Thompson, Billy Bragg, Stewart Lee and Patrick Wolf, amongst many, many others.

She is the Wayward Daughter of Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, giants of the British folk scene. In this official biography, released on May 9 courtesy of Soundcheck Books, Sophie Parkes discovers how Eliza came to inherit the family talent and continue the family trade: reinterpreting, reimagining and renovating English traditional music, and grounding it very much in a modern day experience.
