A specially crafted evening of musical and poetic works inspired by mesmerising myths, legends, poems, ballads and dance from England’s Eastern seaboard

Band Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy, Sheema Mukherjee, Barney Morse-Brown, Ewan Wardrop
Special Guests Kenneth Cranham, Wilko Johnson, Miranda Richardson
Visuals Marry Waterson

Compiled and curated by Eliza Carthy and her father Martin Carthy - one of folk music’s greatest and best-loved innovators who continues to pioneer new ideas into his 80s - he celebrates his 80th birthday this May. The stage will also be brought to life with original artwork by Marry Waterson and Projectionist Slim Verhoef.

Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards, Eliza has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, 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.

Originally commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival, Eliza is curating an exciting line up of guest appearances from Kenneth Cranham, Wilko Johnson and Miranda Richardson. East will take audiences on an alluring journey between land and coast, exploring the great stories and traditions of the East.
