Mercury prize-winning singer, songwriter and musician from a formidable English music dynasty, Eliza Carthy is joined by a full live band for a special church concert.

Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy herself is one of the most recognisable faces of the English folk revival. Her first “solo” album of traditional music in 14 years, Restitute is literally a homely affair, recorded as it was at Eliza’s home in the picturesque Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.

The band for the Restitute tour comprises Eliza Carthy, Ben Seal, Ben Somers, Willy Molleson and David Delarre – with support slot and special guest appearance from Saul Rose.

In addition to the Restitute material, the band will perform songs from brand new recordings of original songs by Eliza Carthy & Ben Seal – taken from their forthcoming album Northern Glowerhouse presents Through that Sound my Secret was Made Known.

Support from Saul Rose and TEYLU

Saul Rose is a renowned English folk melodeon player and singer.

Winner of two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards with ‘folk royalty’ Waterson:Carthy, Saul has also been the long-time right-hand-man and go-to collaborator of Eliza Carthy for almost 30 years. Together they were nominated for a Mercury Prize in 1998 with album Red Rice.

Saul is a highly sought after session musician on the English music scene, and as well as touring with the folk big-band Bellowhead he has guested on numerous albums, including Jackie Oates’ Hyperborean, Norma Waterson & Eliza Carthy’s The Gift, and soundtracks for several films including: ‘Morris – A Life With Bells On’, ‘Little Stranger’ and ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’.

We are excited to announce that Eliza Carthy will be supported by acoustic folk duo Teylu, who are Cornish singer-songwriters and childhood best friends Harriet Seed and Molly Biscoe. Playing together for over 10 years, their sisterly bond is transmitted in both lyric and performance.
