Ellie Gowers, local folk artist and Warwick Art’s Centre’s own Artist-in-Residence, presents an exciting evening of her own music, alongside performances by local musicians and newly discovered talent.
Warwickshire-based Ellie’s songs are built from a childhood love of literature and traditional folk song.
Her debut album, Dwelling By The Water was released this year and draws upon a range of local stories and characters.
She also recently supported The Longest Johns on their Autumn 2022 tour.
Folk musician Ellie Gowers, Warwick Art Centre, Thursday 15 June.
Preview by Anne Cee – Elementary What’s On
Local folk musician Eliie Gowers will lead us through songs about local legends who may have lurked in these parts many moons ago.
Expect an evening of traditional and original folk tunes that celebrate Ellie’s sweet, pure voice and skilful guitar. I’m expecting her to bring us a taste of Warwickshire with tales of triumph and tragedy, in conjunction with other local musicians.
This concert is a wonderful opportunity for us all to engage with the work of Ellie as she continues her tenure as the Artist in Residence at Warwick Arts Centre. Keep your music miles low by coming to this lovely local show.

Celebrating over 40 years as a live performer, Eddi Reader has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers.
What sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance and ability to not only move the listener, but connect her experience to that of her audience. No two performances are ever the same.
Though first brought into the limelight as frontwoman for Fairground Attraction, whose #1 single, Perfect and parent album, First of a Million Kisses, both topped the British charts, it was Eddi’s subsequent solo albums that signalled her ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them very much her own.
Notably, The Songs of Robert Burns (2003) is a timeless interpretation showcasing the poems of Scotland’s national bard and gained her an MBE for ‘outstanding contributions to the Arts’.
From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi Reader extinguishes the preordained boundaries of genre, bringing joyous life to all forms of song.
Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music.
With 10 critically acclaimed solo albums, 3 BRIT awards, a #1 single and an MBE in tow, Eddi continues to delight audiences worldwide.
2022 proved to be one of her busiest touring years yet, playing sell out shows as part of her ‘40 Years Live Tour’ in addition to appearing as special guest with the Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive UK tour.

Before there was carolling, there was wassailing, where seasonal songs were exchanged for money, food and ale.
In the countryside trees were blessed, while in the towns wassaillers went house to house with their songs and calls for Christmas treats.
Coming from the Anglo Saxon waes hael, ‘wassail’ is a toast wishing good health with a ‘be well’.
Eliza Carthy and Jon Boden are combining their considerable talents, touring as a duo for the first time, for a nationwide wassail.
Presenting traditional seasonal material, they will take audiences back to some of the oldest songs in the English canon.
They’ll be telling Christmas tales, spreading good cheer and lighting up the darkest days of the year.
Jon has been a major name in English folk music for over twenty years.
As one half of Spiers & Boden, lead singer of the mighty Bellowhead, his own successful career as a soloist, and with Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings and Jon Boden & The Remnant Strings, he has more BBC Folk Awards than any other artist.
Jon performed in the Hollywood movie About Time and sang/played the theme tunes of both the BBC Radio 2 Folk show and The Archers.
His place as a respected singer songwriter for both theatre and the folk scene, with his soon-to-be-released the third and final album, Last Mile Home, in his post-apocalyptic trilogy, Jon is a musical force to be reckoned with.
Jon, together with John Spiers, also did a stint in The Ratcatchers, the backing band for Eliza Carthy in the mid-noughties.
So he has a long association and friendship with Eliza that has led naturally to the newly launched Wassail project.
Eliza has been nominated twice for the Mercury Prize and winner of innumerable other accolades over a 20 year career.
She’s performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Patrick Wolf and Bob Neuwirth.
Eliza grew up immersed in the world of traditional music. She divides her time between touring and recording with her legendary parents, Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson, as well as engaging in pioneering solo and band projects.
Eliza has co-presented the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards, been a regular guest-presenter on the BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Show and has made many appearances on BBC TV’s Later…with Jools Holland.
