Eliza Carthy is one of the most recognisable faces in British folk, having received an MBE and multiple awards. Jon Boden, lead singer (and one of the principal arrangers) of Bellowhead, has become the stand out performer of his generation of traditional folk artists.
Glad Christmas Comes was recorded in Sheffield earlier this year. It features songs with Waterson: Carthy luminaries Emily Portman & Tim van Eyken, Morris dancing from Ewan Wardrop, Brass from Yorkshire’s own Backstage Brass and was produced by long time collaborator Andy Bell.
Glad Christmas Comes is released on Hudson Records on 24/11/23 digitally, on CD and double LP vinyl. The first single ‘Beautiful Star’ featuring Emily Portman & Tim van Eyken and the album pre-order launch is on 27/10/23.
