“I care about holding my arms open to those that have nothing; I care about the great tradition of hospitality, freedom of thought and speech. I have never turned anyone from my door and would never turn anyone away from my shore. There is plenty for everyone; the fruit in our garden is good.”

Eliza Carthy

 

“There is so much intelligence at play in these greatest hits… The audience don’t want it to end. And it shouldn’t end. This should be a show we can always have – ripping the roof off a marquee at the end of festivals. Because when Eliza Carthy is at her best there’s no one better. And this is Eliza Carthy at her best.”

FRoots, Live Review

 

“..the lady who kick-started the still remarkably healthy contemporary British folk scene is celebrating in style.”
