This one-off show is a combined family celebration of Eliza’s 30th Anniversary, her father, Martin Carthy’s, 80th birthday and pays tribute to her beloved mum – the legendary Norma Waterson, who sadly died earlier this year. Recorded with her touring band The Restitution and brimming with music reimagined, Carthy performs her latest album Queen Of The Whirl, featuring an extended band and various special guests.


2022 marked the 30th career anniversary of outstanding English folk musician and President of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, Eliza Carthy MBE.

Alongside a new album Queen Of The Whirl with her band The Restitution, her anniversary tour features some of her greatest hits and audience-favourites from the past 30 years, including songs from her three Mercury Award nominated albums.

The good Doctor Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury nominated daughter Eliza Carthy, join forces to perform an eclectic range of songs and tunes from their vast family repertoire, drawing from the traditional canon as well as selections from a more contemporary songbook. Since their Topic Records album release, The Elephant, in 2014, this duo format has gone from strength to strength, allowing each artist to showcase their unique individual musical talents, as well as highlighting their symbiotic bond, with instinctive and sensitive arrangements and accompaniment for each other.
