The iconic folk duo of Carthy & Swarbrick with a previously unissued set of 'live' performances from three concerts. Two icons of the English Folk Revival, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick have had a huge influence individually, as a duo or as individual members of the seminal Folk Rock bands, Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. In between they have notched up memorable contributions to an array of different groups and projects. Perhaps, though, they will be most remembered for their duo formed in the 1960s, resurrected in 1989 and which has been an on-going occasional outing ever since. What is remarkable is their intuitive almost telepathic connection on stage. This creates a tension and excitement for the audience and really comes to the fore in a 'live' setting. This set of 'live' performances garnered from various concerts on three continents from 1989 to 1996 perfectly illustrates this. This year sees them celebrating their 70th birthdays with a concert tour and much media coverage.
