Eliza P

Support: Andy Murdoch

Tickets £5 available from The Globe or wegottickets.com

Eliza P is, a word wizard, and hilarious & highly intelligent life force who is motivated by love! A British Folksinger in the true sense of the word, if you can perceive the connection between punk & skiffle, you will get her, just like we got Shane & Kirsty. Eliza finds her sub-cultural matter in places such as ‘Wetherspoons’ after a ‘lukewarm lasagne,’  or smelling the mothballs in a Glossop ‘charity shop.’

A conceptual and lyrical genius, not to mention an incredible comedic performer. But also a very tender soul with the eye of a Kestrel, honing her pen on areas her peers simply couldn’t imagine? A divine force and you must get a hit of ..  you’ll be hooked for life!
