Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band released Big Machine to critical acclaim in February. The album is undoubtedly one of Eliza's most adventurous and accomplished works to date and their live show, which features a who’s who of names in the folk world, is equally as impressive, ambitious and exhilarating.
 
First assembled in 2013 by Eliza to explore and celebrate her long and varied career in folk music, The Wayward Band loved playing together so much that it seemed natural and inevitable that this 12-piece would set about recording an album. Early in 2016 they did just that, and Big Machine was the result.
 
The material on the album represents a healthy slice of everything good that is happening in traditional music now, across a sparkling spectrum of sound. The album features three contemporary songs, as well as several examples of the Broadside ballad collections, given a new twist with music by Eliza and the band.
