Eliza Carthy & Jon Boden’s Wassail

Eliza Carthy & Jon Boden’s Wassail
The Haymarket
Friday 24 November 2023 at 7:30pm

Before there was carolling, there was wassailing, where seasonal songs were exchanged for money, food, and ale.

This festive season, Eliza Carthy and Jon Boden combine their considerable talents and reputations within the UK folk scene, for the first time ever touring as a duo for a nationwide wassail.

Presenting seasonal, traditional material on a stage decorated for the occasion, they will take audiences back to some of the oldest songs in the English canon, telling yuletide tales, spreading good cheer, and lighting up the darkest days of the year, ahead of Christmas Day itself.
