Martin Carthy is just about the most famous folk singer in Great Britain. His 40 year plus career has brought him just about every plaudit possible to achieve in his chosen filed. He has won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Singer Of The Year twice (2002 & 2005) and was awarded an M.B.E. for services to folk music in 1998. The list of his achievements is huge, but he remains approachable, unpretentious and thoroughly engaging both as a person and a performer.
"Waiting For Angels", Martin's most recent album, was his first solo release in six years. Produced by his daughter Eliza Carthy, it shows the continuing evolution of Martin's art and includes musical contributions by Eliza and fellow guitarist Martin Simpson. There were a huge number of reviews and general media stories about Martin at the time of release raising his already high profile, and acknowledging his position as the most important folk singer in the country.
This long awaited "comeback" album was released in October 2004 to universal critical and public acclaim. Five Star reviews in publications as diverse as The Times and Record Collector show the breadth of his reputation, not just as a folksinger, but as a national icon. This is a must-have album for anyone who cares about music and is now available at mid price.
