MARTIN CARTHY MBE

Britain’s leading folk interpreter. ‘Essentially he is at his best in solo performance;
his vocal style is cleanly articulated, slightly nasal with a natural vibrato,
accompanied by a distinctive guitar style’. A rare chance to see him in a more
intimate environment!
Martin Carthy @ Orpington Folk Club (the Change of Horses 2005)

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.

Martin Carthy was awarded the MBE for services to English Music and won
Singer of the Year and Best Traditional Track at the BBC Radio 2 Awards 2005.
