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.
He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking Acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. 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.
Tickets: £17 Full. £16 Concessions.
Pete Says: Martin is one of the true greats in the history of Folk Music. Long overdue for a visit as he was last with us over seven years ago. This is a must see night for all lovers of Traditional Folk Music. Martin is a true legend and this is a gig that should not be missed.
