ELIZA CARTHY new date Wed September 8th 2021 (Concert at The Crescent)
24th January 2021
£22.50
Eliza Carthy MBE should need no introduction. A multi-award winning singer, songwriter and musician from a formidable English music dynasty. Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy is one of the most recognisable faces of the English folk revival. Her first “solo” album of traditional music in 14 years, Restitute is literally a homely affair, recorded at Eliza’s home in the picturesque Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire. The band for the Restitute tour comprises Eliza Carthy, Ben Seal, Ben Somers, Willy Molleson and David Delarre with a support slot and special guest appearance from Saul Rose. In addition to the Restitute material, the band will perform songs from brand new recordings of original songs by Eliza Carthy & Ben Seal – taken from their forthcoming album Through that Sound my Secret was Made Known.

DELLA MAE at The Crescent YORK YO24 1AW
25th April 2021
£16.50
In the making of their fourth album Headlight, Grammy award-nominated band Della Mae has claimed a more daring sense of freedom than they’d ever allowed themselves before. Their first full-length since their 2015 self-titled record, Headlight matches its raw intensity with an unbridled joy. Described as ‘the record we’ve always wanted to make’, Della Mae views their newfound lack of restraint as an imperative for the all-female band. Boldly breaking genre convention, the band have pushed beyond their bluegrass roots and followed their instinct to their most sonically adventurous body of work to date – embracing the album’s potential as a platform for change and delivering a collection of songs at turns fearlessly personal and powerfully resonant. This is a seated show with seats reserved. Promoted by The Black Swan Folk Club and Please Please You.
