Martin Carthy – In concert
Folk legend Martin Carthy – live at The Trooper Inn.
For more than 50 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 have resulted in more than 40 albums.
Starts at 8pm
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
