Between them, Norma and Eliza have 3 Mercury Prize nominations and have both been presented with BBC Folk Singer of the Year awards (Norma in 2001, Eliza in 2003), as well as innumerable other accolades.

Norma Waterson & Eliza Carthy bring all these songs to life, no matter what the origin, with their wonderfully versatile and compassionate voices.
