Watford Folk Club are pleased to welcome Martin Carthy on 13th September 2019.
TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FROM WEGOTTICKETS http://www.wegottickets.com/event/478032
(£15.00 +£1.50 BOOKING FEE) OR ON FRIDAYS 26TH JULY AND 6TH SEPTEMBER IN PERSON AT THE CLUB. (WE ARE CLOSED DURING AUGUST).
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. //He’s a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. He always prefers to follow an insatiable musical curiosity rather than cash in on his unrivalled position. Perhaps, most significant of all, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.
Look forward to seeing you for a great night with Martin!
The Watford Folk Club meets every Friday, 8-11 pm in the Colne River Room at The Pumphouse, Local Board Road, Watford, Hertfordshire WD17 2JP.
