Eliza & Martin Carthy
The good doctor Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury-nominated daughter Eliza Carthy, join forces to perform songs from their first ever duo album, a CD of traditional material entitled ‘The Elephant’.
Martin is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generation of artists from Bob Dylan to Paul Simon. Eliza has twice been nominated for the Mercury Prize and is a multi-award winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Martin Carthy has for more than 40 years 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.
“Arguably the greatest English folksong performer, writer, collector and editor of them all” ~ Q Magazine
Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation. She has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.
“One of the figureheads of the English folk revival… compelling” ~ Evening Standard
