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!
