2022 marks the 30th career anniversary of outstanding English folk musician and President of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, Eliza Carthy MBE. She marks this significant milestone with new album Queen Of The Whirl with her band The Restitution. The album features re-recordings of some of her ‘greatest hits’ and audience-favourites from past 30 years, including songs from her 3 Mercury Award nominated albums.

Eliza has toured all over the world; danced with Hugh Masekele in Ghana; crossed the Prairies, the Alps, and the waters of Lake Titicaca, all for the sake of playing the fiddle and spreading the word of English traditional music. Queen Of The Whirl is her celebration of 30 years of silliness and profundity, with a crack team of musicians made up of her colleagues and counterparts. 30 years of music reimagined, from Billy Bragg to Peggy Seeger, from The Ratcatchers to Imagined Village, from bloody boots in Trafalgar Square to the moors of North Yorkshire, and everywhere in between. It’s been quite a ride!

Angeline Morrison is a vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and Morris dancer based in Cornwall, who believes in the inherent beauty of sad songs. Angeline’s homespun sonic aesthetic, deeply emotive writing and layered vocal harmonies are all stitched together to make small, tender, often dark stories in song.
