Product Description:

Personnel: Eliza Carthy (vocals, violin, fiddle, piano); Mary MacMaster, Heather Macleod, Maria Gilhooley, Norma Waterson (vocals); Ben Ivitsky (acoustic & electric guitars, viola, trombone); Tom Salter (electric guitar);
Tim Van Eyken (guitar, harmonica, melodian); Donald MacDougal (guitar); Jon Bodin (fiddle).
After the pop-oriented ANGELS AND CIGARETTES raised eyebrows with its Liz Phair-like "The Company of Men" and scored an improbable mainstream hit with a downtempo remix of "Train Song," ANGLICANA found fiddler and singer Eliza Carthy returning to traditional British folk music. Focusing primarily on her instrumental gifts instead of her fine vocals, ANGLICANA is true to its title, featuring a well-chosen playlist of almost exclusively traditional British folk tunes such as "Pretty Ploughboy" and "The Bold Privateer." One endearing and sweet exception is "Dr. McMBE," a tune Carthy wrote for her father, guitarist Martin Carthy, in honor of his being made a member of the Order of the British Empire.
