Martin Carthy & Jon Wilks At Halton Mill, Lancaster
November 19 @ 7:30 pm GMT£18
Martin Carthy has an insatiable musical curiosity… and a lifetime of wonderful stories and songs to share. There will also be a chance for audiences to ask questions of this mighty oak of the English folk tradition. Expect frank and fascinating insights into all manner of subjects… from Scarborough Fair to the Beastie Boys!
82 this year, Martin is one in a million: one of folk music’s greatest innovators, one of its best-loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. A consummate storyteller, singer, guitarist, oral historian, he is renowned for his settings of traditional songs as well as his authoritative interpretations of newly composed material. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it… from Bob Dylan to Billy Bragg.
