Martin Carthy / Gwenifer Raymond / Zoe Fegan on Sunday 4th September 2022

MARTIN CARTHY

Lifetime Achievement Award – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014

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.

Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife, Norma Waterson, and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels (Topic TSCD527) was the latest. Whether in the folk clubs (which he continues to champion), on the concert stage or making TV appearances (he was the subject of the acclaimed `Originals' music documentary strand on BBC 2) - there are few roles that Martin Carthy hasn't played.

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.

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

‘Carthy is a master of the ballad of substance, songs that tell stories, whether they are traditional, his own or from contemporary writers.’ The Telegraph


GWENIFER RAYMOND

Gwenifer recently put out her second album, ‘Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain’ on the acclaimed Tompkins Square label in Autumn 2020 and is basically one Jools Holland appearance away from being the next big thing in roots music. You should not miss this opportunity to see her in an intimate venue. Growing up in Wales and now based in Brighton, Gwenifer specialises in sparse American primitive instrumentals drawn from the roots music of Mississippi and Appalachia.

ZOE FEGAN

Heavily inspired by Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell and HAIM, Zoe combines reflective lyrics, harmonies and folky melodies to create catchy yet melancholy pop sounds
