The pioneering English traditional folk powerhouse that is Eliza Carthy MBE first assembled the Wayward Band in 2013 in order to explore and celebrate her long and varied career in folk music - 'the last truly underground music scene'.
Gathering a 12-piece band of hugely talented musicians from across the UK, she set out on the road to promote her ‘best of’ compilation, Wayward Daughter (Topic Records), which coincided with a biography of the same name - and saw the band become a firm festival favourite.
Eliza and the Wayward Band loved playing together so much it seemed natural and inevitable, as well as characteristically ambitious, that this 12-piece would set about recording the highly acclaimed album, Big Machine (2017).
Championing the vibrancy of today’s traditional music scene with a big band and big sound, this is a gig not to be missed!
