St Petroc's Sessions: Eliza Carthy Restitute Live

Eliza Carthy MBE should by now need no introduction. A multi-award winning singer, songwriter and musician from a formidable English music dynasty.

Describing herself simply as a “modern English musician”, Eliza Carthy herself is one of the most recognisable faces of the English folk revival. Her first “solo” album of traditional music in 14 years, Restitute is literally a homely affair, recorded as it was at Eliza’s home in the picturesque Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.

The band for the Restitute tour comprises Eliza Carthy, Ben Seal, Ben Somers, Willy Molleson and David Delarre – with support slot and special guest appearance from Saul Rose.

In addition to the Restitute material, the band will perform songs from brand new recordings of original songs by Eliza Carthy & Ben Seal – taken from their forthcoming album Northern Glowerhouse presents Through that Sound my Secret was Made Known.

Supported by: TEYLU 

We are excited to announce that Eliza Carthy will be supported by acoustic folk duo Teylu, who are Cornish singer-songwriters and childhood best friends Harriet Seed and Molly Biscoe. Playing together for over 10 years, their sisterly bond is transmitted in both lyric and performance.



The St Petroc’s Sessions are a series of concerts offering a rare opportunity to enjoy live music and entertainment in the beautiful setting of Cornwall’s largest church, St Petroc’s in Bodmin, which dates from the 15th Century. Expect big-name headliners and a platform for local talent. 

Organised by intoBodmin and Devon-based promoters Cabaret Voltaire, the St Petroc’s Sessions launched in September 2017 at the Celebrate Bodmin Festival. They have so far featured acts such as This is The Kit, Fairport Convention and The Cuban Brothers. Featuring talent both home-grown to Bodmin, and from across the South West – there’s big names and the best emerging talent.
