Martin & Eliza Carthy
Martin Carthy is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, while his daughter Eliza has been twice-nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards.

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.

"Arguably the greatest English folk song 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. Winner of innumerable accolades over a 20 year career, Eliza has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Patrick Wolf and Bob Neuwirth. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.

"Eliza Carthy is one of the figureheads of the English folk revival … compelling." - Evening Standard
