Martin Carthy Saturday 22 November 2014 – SOLD OUT
Folk legend, lifetime achievement award winner and one of folk music’s greatest names Martin Carthy comes to the town.
For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures.
His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.
Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife (Norma Waterson) and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums. there are few roles that Martin Carthy hasn’t played.
He’s a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic & electric guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material.
He always prefers to follow an insatiable musical curiosity rather than cash in on his unrivalled position.
Perhaps, most significant of all, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.
As with all our 2014 events this show will be at the Jubilee Hall
NOW SOLD OUT
We hope you can join us for another musical and entertaining evening.
