An Afternoon with Martin Carthy
An afternoon with Martin Carthy, live-streamed from the Falcon studio in Whitby, UK. Old Songs partnered with the Folk Music Society of NY, the Folk Song Society of Greater Boston, the Folklore Society of Washington and Janie Meneely & Rob Van Sante to bring you this rare and wonderful event.
Martin Carthy has remained one of the most influential figures in British traditional music, inspiring contemporaries such as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, and later artists such as Richard Thompson, since he emerged as a young musician in the early days of the folk revival. Along with his wife, Norma Waterson, he may be best known for his work with the Watersons, Steeleye Span, the Albion Band, Waterson-Carthy, and with his daughter Eliza. It is indeed a treat and a rare opportunity to hear Martin.
