Eliza Carthy 'Definitive Collection' CD


Eliza Carthy is a phenomenon; still only in her mid 20s her recording career goes back 10 years and is littered with praise, prizes and pre-eminence. THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION includes songs from her solo albums, from group appearances and collaborations with other artists. It is a generous overview and a good introduction to the superb recordings which she has made. Eliza Carthy is a workaholic. She performs and records as a solo artist, with her own group, with her mum and dad (Norma Waterson & Martin Carthy as Waterson:Carthy), in duos and in collboration with other artists as diverse as Joan Baez and Bill Frisell.
