Un-Peeled Folk: Martin Carthy + Alasdair Roberts
Marking the death of John Peel, Un-Peeled presents a host of folk bands.
Former member of Steeleye Span, The Albion Band and folk super group Band Of Hope, Martin Carthy was awarded the MBE in 1998 for services to folk music. Further credits include nurturing Bob Dylan and giving his arrangement of Scarborough Fair to Paul Simon. He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed
material. Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife Norma Waterson and daughter Eliza Carthy has resulted in more than 40 albums.
Martin Carthy tour dates
One man, one guitar, and a quality selection of bittersweet folk songs. He has a recurrent interest in metaphysical themes and in folklore and history. Alasdair Roberts has had a remarkable career to date, starting his music-making in the mid-nineties (under the band name Appendix Out), collaborating widely with many musicians in the intervening 20 years as well as artists from other disciplines such as film makers, poets and puppeteers.
