An ambitious new project featuring Martin and Eliza Carthy with long-time collaborators Duotone (Barney Morse-Brown) and Sheema Mukherjee and dancer and choreographer Ewan Wardop.
Martin and Eliza have spent the last few months compiling and curating a collection of musical and poetical works from the East of England. Containing myths, legends, poems and ballads from the furthest North of Northumberland, through Hull right down to Suffolk.
Featuring diverse elements from epic stories to traditional dancing, with the joyful stepping of East Anglian rhythmic dance, and maybe a bit of solo Rapper thrown in.
Expect a connection to the land and the coast, great stories and a real sense of what the history and traditions of the East have to offer.
Commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
