Martin Carthy at Old Cinema Launderette
March 9 @ 7:00 pm GMT£23.10
For more than 50 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.
Former member of Steeleye Span, The Albion Band and folk super group Band Of Hope, Martin Carthy was awarded the MBE in 1998 for services to folk music. Further credits include nurturing Bob Dylan and giving his arrangement of Scarborough Fair to Paul Simon. He’s a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife Norma Waterson and daughter Eliza Carthy has resulted in more than 40 albums.
