Eliza Carthy - Queen of the Whirl

Eliza Carthy is the daughter of folk legends Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy, but over the last thirty years she has managed to carve out her own distinct niche on the scene. And she’s celebrating those illustrious thirty years with this album which features newly recorded versions of some of her most beloved songs (she asked fans on Twitter to nominate which ones). It’s a fantastic listen – even if you know these songs inside out, they feel fresh. And if you’ve yet to fall for her charms, then this is the ideal jumping in point. GM
