July 29th 8pm
With her unique vocal style, Eliza performs a wide range of folk, blues, American old-time and contemporary songs that span over a century of music.
Born in Oxford with creative and musical parents, Eliza developed a love for singing at a young age, surrounded by folk songs and plentiful traditional music. Later in her childhood she moved to the utterly inspiring Dartmoor, Devon. She was soon introduced to the genre of Old-Time and Appalachian music in her early teens after playing along with multi-instrumentalist father Peter Acty on clawhammer banjo. She began to discover her singing fitted perfectly with traditional American music and has since never looked back.
