British Folk Fiddler Eliza Carthy this Saturday!

Aug 11, 2015

Eliza Carthy is our special guest on "Folk Music & Beyond" this Saturday at 3 pm.  The talented fiddler-singer  is the daughter of two legendary folk icons Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson.  Eliza is part of the next generation of young British musicians actively promoting and performing English folk and traditional music.  She talks about her musical partnerships with fiddler Nancy Kerr, the Kings of Calicutt, the Waterson family, and her parents.  We'll hear music from her 20+ year career, including songs from her two Mercury-nominated recordings Red Rice and Anglicana.
