Martin Carthy - Band on the Wall

Martin CarthyMartin Carthy appears at Manchester's Band on the Wall on Friday 31st January 2014.

For the past forty years and more, Carthy had been at the very centre of English traditional music, be it as a solo artist or as a collaborator with Dave Swarbrick, Steeleye Span, wife Norma Waterson and daughter Eliza Carthy and many others.

His influence has spread beyond British shores. Carthy's reading of Lord Franklin became the template for Bob Dylan's Dream, whilst his arrangement of Scarborough Fair was the basis for the popular Simon & Garfunkel hit. More recently his influence has been acknowledged by artists such as as Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Richard Thompson and Martin Simpson.

Doors open at 7.30 pm and tickets priced in advance at 19 can be obtained from the venue link below.
