Eliza Carthy comes to Southsea’s Kings Theatre tonight ahead of the release of her double best-of album, Wayward Daughter, in June.
It’s a celebration not only of 21 years as a professional musician, but also of her full recovery from a series of throat operations.
She’s received two Mercury Prizes, a Paul Hamlyn Prize, numerous BBC Radio Folk Awards and many other accolades.
She has also travelled the globe to perform and record with artists including Billy Bragg, Paul Weller, The Wainwrights, Richard Thompson, Bryan Ferry, Nick Cave and Joan Baez.
And the fiddle-player and singer is part of a great musical dynasty, as the daughter of Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson.
Her Kings’s show is the second night of her tour and also features Jim Moray and a special big band from 7.30pm.
Tickets: £20 from (023) 9282 8282 or kings-southsea.com.
