Happy thing to all, and to all (as Terry Pratchett might say), a Good Thing. X


Biography

Eliza Carthy - ‘This musical journey began through the joint efforts of the Sage Gateshead and Alan Bearman at King's Place in London-Kathryn Tickell thought we would sound good together, and it turns out she was right. She later said that it hadn't occurred to her that we were all women who played the violin and sang at once. Happy coincidence then, and one that is working well for our sound-tight harmonies and rhythms in voices and bows.
And we had such a good time, and such nice tunes, that we thought we would make this
album as an excuse to hang out some more. We played everything pretty ... Read more

Happy coincidence then, and one that is working well for our sound-tight harmonies and rhythms in voices and bows.
And we had such a good time, and such nice tunes, that we thought we would make this
album as an excuse to hang out some more. We played everything pretty much live in a
room, with fancy bits added later and mistakes glossed over. Oliver Knight added ideas
and hobnobs, made killer coffee and tried to work out how to make us sound alright.
The word "Laylam" means "chorus”: a good reason to sing together in any setting.
Often relating to birds...which we are. Join in then.’

Eliza Carthy: Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging
performers of her generation. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and winner of
innumerable other accolades over a 15 year career, Eliza has performed and recorded
with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Nick
Cave, Patrick Wolf and Bob Neuwirth. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk
music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and
boundary-crossing performance.

Eliza grew up immersed in the world of traditional music. She still divides her time between touring and recording with her legendary parents, Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson as well as engaging in numerous pioneering solo and band projects, including work with Pere Ubu and Melanie Challenger, an artist in residence in Antarctica. In what has become something of a parallel career, Eliza has co-presented the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards, been a regular guest-presenter on the BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Show and has made many appearances on BBC TVs 'Later with Jools'. In her own right, Eliza has
been the subject of an hour long ITV documentary ('Heaven & Earth') and 'My Music' on
Channel 5. Comedian and writer Stewart Lee describes Eliza as "Not the Messiah, but a very naughty girl".

Bella Hardy: Bella Hardy's soaring and captivating voice inhabits her characters and spins
her stories with an equal balance of strength and sensitivity. She presents folk songs in
the best tradition, not as antiquated museum pieces, but as relevant and very human
artworks. Winner of the BBC Radio 2 Best Original Song 2012 for The Herring Girl, and
nominated for the same award in 2008 for Three Black Feathers, her own songs range in
subject matter from fairytales to English working class history, via childhood nostalgia,
myth, murder and the human condition, touching on both the fantastical, story telling
elements of Kate Bush, and the lovelorn songwriting craft of Carole King. From Edale in
the Peak District, Bella Hardy has released four critically acclaimed solo records, most
recently The Dark Peak and The White (Noe, 2012) and Songs Lost & Stolen (Navigator,
2011), toured extensively, and featured across the national media on shows such as Radio
4's Women's Hour, Radio 3's The Verb, and Radio 2's Terry Wogan Show.

Kate Young: Kate Young is Scotland's rising folk pioneer, leading an exploration of
traditional and world music with an intoxicating passion and drive, captured as her soaring voice and fiddle dance together to create a uniquely diverse and poignant sound. Her deep love for the art of song-writing is always evident, her compositions demonstrating her desire for endless sonic discovery, yet steeped in the natural landscapes of her home in Borthwick. Her long anticipated debut album will be released in Autumn 2012 under the name of her trio 'Kate in the Kettle'. Young is involved in many different musical projects, and tours internationally with world-music band 'Ethno in Transit'. She also worked as a researcher with the project 'En-Compass' travelling to Kenya, China and British Guyana to gather cultural artefacts for exhibition.

Lucy Farrell: Lucy Farrell began lulling the folk scene with her rich and honeyed voice
when she left her Kent home to study the Folk and Traditional Music course in Newcastle
in 2004. Since then, her exploration of traditional and contemporary song has touched the
hearts of audiences well beyond the folk world, her beguiling and crystal clear singing style crafting stories with spellbinding skill. Her talent for song writing is also gaining recognition; her melancholic and heartbreaking To The Boy, which she recorded with duo partner Jonny Kearney on The North Farm Sessions EP, featured in Ian Fitzgibbon's 2011 film Death of a Superhero. With Kearney, Farrell has been nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. A versatile musician on fiddle, viola, and musical saw, Farrell is in popular demand as a session player, and can be seen performing regularly in The Emily Portman Trio.
