Product Description

Probably the biggest star that has emerged from the Folk Scene in the last decade, Eliza Carthy is still on her way up. Her last album, Anglicana, sold in excess of 20,000 in the UK alone and won her an unprecedented three awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (Album Of The Year, Singer Of The Year and Best Traditional Track). She is also the only folk based artist to garner two Mercury Music Prize nominations. She is not just one of the most highly rated singers and musicians of her generation, but has emerged as a Radio and TV presenter as well and has the highest media profile of anybody on the folk scene. Rough Music is a step on from what she has done before and is a powerful, vital, multi-layered album full of dark rhythms in her vision of English traditional music. Her backing band The Rat Catchers features her long time collaborator, Ben Ivitsky, and two of the fastest rising stars on the folk scene, Jon Boden and John Spiers, themselves double winners in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Striking through it's seemingly total absence of percussion throughout, rough music is a masterpiece in modern English Folk.
It seems Eliza and her fellow musicians 'the ratcatchers' are returning to a more traditional sound with this latest album, certainly when compared to the critically acclaimed if slightly more commercial preceding album, 'Anglicana'.
This said, it is as with all of Eliza Carthy's previous albums, hugely accessable for a wider (and dare I say it, younger?!)audience who are unaccustomed to English Folk music.
I love it. I'm sure you will to!

Once again Eliza brilliantly interprets traditional British folk music infusing it with her own particular magic. Every track is a gem. She is a real breath of fresh air in an industry that is stale with shallow 2 dimensional offerings from semi talented individuals. Eliza plays fiddle as well as singing and is ably backed by the rat catchers who provide a rich tapestry against which her music can be displayed. Buy it for a real alternative - you won't regret it.

I saw Eliza perform the cream of this album live a few weeks ago, and the album is a good souvenir of a great night. She continues to fuse a real love and feeling for traditional music with modern interpretation, great young contemporary musicians and her own undoubted musicianship.
Eliza works well with "The Ratcatchers" (are Boden and Spiers trying to set a record for concurrent collaborations??) and the continue to thrill with the sheer passion, exuberance and skill of their interpretations of great English music.
All Mike Harding listeners will all be familiar with "The Gallant Hussar" before the first month is out, but the whole album deserves close listening. Buy and enjoy.
On a personal front can we stop referring to Eliza as the child of her parents? I love the music of both - Martin Carthy was the first album I bought, but surely she has done enough to be judged by her own standards now!! Go Eliza!

I anticipated this album with the kind of glee small children experience on a trip to the sweet shop. I went through the whole shebang: the sweaty palms, the butterflies in my tummy, and even the more-than-slightly-geeky crazed feeling of anxiety that something might go horribly wrong and I would never ever get to listen to it...
As it was, all was well. More than well, in fact, as the object of my somewhat irrational desire entirely lives up to my expectations. This album is genuinely great. Each track clearly exhibits the passion and vitality for traditional music with which the names Eliza Carthy, John Spiers and Jon Boden have become synonymous, and the energy generated by all the performers is fantastic.
Whenever I listen to this album I have an uncontrollable urge to sing very loudly and/or dance around my room with a large grin on my face... go on, buy it! Spread the joy!

Could this girl fail in folk music given her Parents? Well she could have if she just became a clone of them instead she chose to take a different route and to freshen up folk music with a more contemporary feel. This is one of my favourite folk music albums and a welcome break from manufactured musicians all too prevalent nowadays.

This is a very enjoyable album of mainly traditional folk tunes and well worth adding to any collection.
