Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick in ConcertFriday, September 25th, 2009
It will be a busy night at the Corn Exchange this Saturday as the legendary folk duo of Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick take to the stage.
This is a great opportunity to see two of folk music’s finest performers in historic setting of this fine Victorian hall.
For more than 40 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.
Regarded by many as Britain’s finest folk fiddler Dave Swarbrick has inspired and influenced countless musicians over five decades. From his early work with the Ian Campbell Folk Group and his groundbreaking time with Fairport Convention he has continued to be at the forefront of the British folk movement.
