Anglicana is Eliza's latest, working with traditional material. I like it quite a lot, and though I don't think it lives up to the hype, it's well worth buying. I've only seen her live with Waterson Carthy.
But I do find generally that live performances are much more memorable and striking than the same material on CD. This is very true with Kate Rusby, who is absolutely entrancing live, doing almost anything, but I don't enjoy a CD played straight through. Picking out the jewels is another matter.
Nancy Kerr and James Fagan are again quite delightful, performing in the club.
And on good authority, watch out for Rose Kemp.
