One of the great names behind the resurgence of traditional music in recent years plays Norwich Arts Centre on Thursday, April 16 (8pm).

Eliza Carthy has crossed musical boundaries continually through her packed and award-winning 15-year career, which has seen her collaborate with artists as diverse as Wilco, Damon Albarn, Bryan Ferry and Paul Weller.

Twice-nominated for a prestigious Nationwide Mercury Prize, she is also the winner of more than five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

From an early age Eliza was championed by John Peel and Billy Bragg and has been touring on and off since the age of 14. Yorkshire-born and now Edinburgh-based, Eliza grew up as part of traditional music's 'First Family' and divides her time between touring and recording with her parents Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson (as Waterson; Carthy) and numerous pioneering solo and band projects.
