Backed by her 12-piece Wayward Band, folk mainstay Eliza Carthy visits the RNCM to play songs from her acclaimed latest album, Big Machine.
The record, released in February, features contributions from the likes of Damien Dempsey, Teddy Thompson and MC Dizraeli, as Carthy and band tackle contemporary and traditional songs – including Broadside ballads from the collections housed at Manchester’s own Chetham’s Library.
The Wayward Band was formed by Carthy in 2013 – the latest incarnation for the Yorkshire-born musician, who is well over 20 years into a career that has seen her collaborate with the likes of Billy Bragg, Wilco, Jools Holland, Patrick Wolf and Linda Thompson.
