Homegrown in Yorkshire with Eliza Carthy and The Dan Webster Band
Sunday 17th February 3pm
In this double-billed concert, we are delighted to welcome Eliza Carthy to the festival to perform a very rare solo performance for us.
She is one of the most engaging performers of her generation. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and winner of innumerable other accolades over a 21-year career, Eliza has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Richard Hawley, John Smith and Van Dyke Parks, Patrick Wolf and Peggy Seeger. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance. In 2016 Eliza was honoured with an MBE for her amazing services to folk music.
Dan Webster is a road-seasoned English singer-songwriter, whose music is influenced by the sounds and storytelling traditions of American and British Folk music, which he uniquely blends into his own distinct fusion of Folk and Americana.
“Mixing folk, country and even a little rock ‘n’ roll, all delivered with a clear, distinctive voice, some great playing and an immaculate sound, it stopped me in my tracks.”
- Folk Radio UK – The Tin Man – featured album Feb 2015
‘He is the missing link, the joining point, where folk fuses with country – as good as you’ll hear on any record out of Austin or Nashville - beautiful, a malleable mash of folk, country and Alt rock.’
- Americana UK 9/10
“His delivery is passionate, this album boasts a big, big heart.”
- Folk Radio UK
‘An insightful lyricist with a great voice’
