Eliza Carthy Tunde Jegede
Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy still in her mid-30s, is only now beginning to reach the height of her musical powers. During a 20-year journey/career she has become one of the most dazzling and recognised folk musicians of a generation. She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with canny, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance. Many of the current crop of young professional folk musicians owe their successes in part to her determination, standard-bearing and campaigning spirit.
Tunde Jegede is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who is uniquely placed between the worlds of Contemporary Classical and African Classical Music. He plays and performs on the Cello, Kora (West African Harp Lute), Piano and Percussion.
