WHAT'S ON / Martin Carthy

The Queen's Hall presents

Martin Carthy

27 August 2017 at 7:30pm

For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers far beyond the folk scene.  He’s a ballad singer, a ground-breaking guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of new compositions. His settings of traditional songs have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.  In 2014 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

"Carthy is a master of the ballad of substance, songs that tell stories, whether they are traditional, his own or from contemporary writers" (The Telegraph)
