We’re excited to welcome the award-winning English folk musician Eliza Carthy MBE with her band The Restitution to celebrate her 30th year as a full-time musician. 

She’s marking the anniversary with the release of her Queen Of The Whirl EP, including re-recordings of some of her greatest hits and songs from three Mercury Award nominated albums. 

Eliza turned professional in March 1992, and since then has toured all over the world. She’s danced with Hugh Masekela in Ghana, crossed the Prairies, the Alps and the waters of Lake Titicaca, all for the sake of playing the fiddle and spreading the word of English traditional music. 

Queen Of The Whirl is her celebration of thirty years of silliness and profundity, with a crack team of musicians made up of her colleagues and counterparts: thirty years of music reimagined, from Billy Bragg to Peggy Seeger, from The Ratcatchers to Imagined Village, from bloody boots in Trafalgar Square to the moors of North Yorkshire, and everywhere in between.
