As well as announcing new tour dates (see below) we have the immense pleasure of sharing the video premiere from Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band for Hug You Like A Mountain. Joined by Teddy Thompson, the video finds the band performing in a remote village hall with the most miserable looking audience you could imagine. But fear not, things soon brighten up as the band take to the dancefloor and even manage to get the audience doing some fancy coordinated moves. Not a dull face left in sight and is that a twinkle in the eye of Lucy Farrell dancing with Teddy Thompson?
One thing’s for sure; you won’t catch a dull audience on the Big Machine Tour (I know, I’ve been twice), bring your dancing shoes!
“…an album of unrestrained ambition and masterful execution from a performer at the very top of her game. Big Machine has all the hallmarks of a vastly important release and should cement Eliza Carthy’s place as one of our most valuable musicians.” Thomas Blake (Folk Radio UK). Read the full review here.
