Folk singer’s foray into her past
1:59pm Friday 20th May 2011 in Arts
THE Eliza Carthy Band performs at the Gala Theatre tomorrow to promote the newlyreleased record, Neptune.
“The material is ordered chronologically and is about the last ten years of my life,” said the folk singer.
“It’s a story about ending relationships and beginning new ones with their own imperfections, and about the thought that nothing is perfect, even when written in the stars.”
Eliza Carthy has been nominated twice for the Mercury Prize and has won innumerable other accolades in her 15- year-career. She has performed and recorded with many diverse artists, and is respected for having revitalised the genre with intelligent, charismatic and boundarycrossing performance.
Neptune is the solo followup to 2008’s Dreams of Breathing Underwater and the first record released through her own label, HemHem Records.
The show starts at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £13, £11 concessions, £10 Friends, from 0191-332-4041 or online at galadurham.co.uk.
