Wild Singing Festival at Kings Place, London starts today! Kicking things off in style tonight is the mighty Eliza Carthy.
Eliza Carthy is one of the most influential figures in the UK folk scene. With her exuberant stage presence, she re-interprets the folk tradition for a new generation. Ahead of a live performance, Eliza will be in conversation with Folk on Foot podcast host Matthew Bannister discussing family, heritage and the link between her music, the landscape and the vast expanse of beautiful ocean around her home in Robin Hood’s Bay.
Wild Singing is a weekend festival of folk music inspired by the natural world for Kings Place’s year-long Nature Unwrapped series.
Co-curated by Matthew Bannister’s award-winning Folk on Foot podcast, the weekend sees influential figures from the UK folk scene, Eliza Carthy, Nancy Kerr & James Fagan and Martin Simpson in evening concerts, preceded by ‘in conversation’ events with Matthew alongside film and footage from the podcasts, bringing together the podcaster’s three passions – folk music, walking and telling stories in sound.
