Please note that Chris Watson, our Artist in Residence for Nature Unwrapped, has created a sound calendar of environments from the northern hemisphere. Ahead of this show, you will be hearing sounds from Dryburn Moor. Come half an hour before the performance to enjoy the installation in Hall One. Your ticket is required.
Eliza Carthy is one of the most influential figures in the UK folk scene. With her exuberant stage presence, she re-interprets the folk tradition for a new generation. Ahead of a live performance, Eliza will be in conversation with Folk on Foot podcast host Matthew Bannister discussing family, heritage and the link between her music, the landscape and the vast expanse of beautiful ocean around her home in Robin Hood’s Bay.
Their conversation will be interspersed with rare original footage, from the podcast recording, of Eliza and her family singing around the kitchen table in Yorkshire.
