English folk royalty Eliza Carthy will be releasing their new album Big Machine on the 3rd February.

Carthy is joined on the record by The Wayward Band, a twelve piece band featuring the likes of Saul Rose, Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead) and Barn Stradling (Blowzabella). The result is a huge “big band” sound reminiscent of Bellowhead that perfectly suits Eliza Carthy’s voice.

The album also sees collaborations with Teddy Thompson, MC Dizraeli and Damien Dempsey.
