Martin Carthy & Eliza Carthy

Monday 13 May 2019

We welcome Martin Carthy and his daughter Eliza back to the New Vic for an incredible collaborative one-night performance.

Martin is a legendary ballad singer, guitarist and one of folk music’s greatest innovators, who has influenced a generations of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. Eliza – who has been twice-nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards – has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performances performing songs from their first duo album, The Elephant.

Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all”  Q Magazine
