Eliza Carthy 'Anglicana' CD


'Anglicana' is a sensational album of traditional songs refracted through the sensibilities of an extraordinary young twenty first century musician. Eliza Carthy, daughter of Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, is the most impressive and engaging performer of her generation. Not only an inventive, innovative singer and fiddle-player, she is a musical conceptualist who treats the bequest of the folk tradition with respect and knowledge and, sometimes, with refreshing irreverence. The splendid 'Anglicana' stands as her finest recorded work to date and received the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Album winner in 2003, as well as being short listed for the Mercury Award
