Big Machine Tour 2017
This November and December bring Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band on their Big Machine 2017 Tour.
Eliza Carthy has assembled a crack team of talented nutters to make Big Machine, her ninth album as singer/fiddler and bandleader.
Describing herself simply as a modern English musician, Eliza Carthy is only now beginning to reach the height of her musical powers. During more than 20 years of journey/career she has become one of the most dazzling and recognised folk musicians of a generation. She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with canny, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance. Many of the current crop of young professional folk musicians owe their successes in part to her determination, standard-bearing and campaigning spirit.
To celebrate this, in 2013 the multi-award winner mustered an all-star band, featuring many of the leading figures from her life, for a new and astonishing big band sound covering favourites from her long career in music. They are now embarking on their first album together, Big Machine, presenting new traditional material alongside contemporary songs, and the sound they make is unlike anything you have heard before. Touring the UK in November. You really, really don´t want to miss this.
Support will be from from Duotone.
