Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick

Sunday 5th Oct 2014

Carthy Swarb smGiven a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014, this legendary duo's experienced approach lacks none of the fervour of their early days, and brings a maturity born of many years living with the music. Before he joined the legendary Fairport Convention, Dave Swarbrick worked alongside leading folkies like Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, Beryl, teaming up with Martin Carthy in 1966. 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, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.

“Intense and demanding, this is hard core traditional music. Sublime fiddle playing and the passionate delivery of evocative old songs by their ablest interpretor.” Telegraph
