Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick

Two of folk music's greatest innovators in one venue!
 
Arts Centre
Old Town, Swindon
Tuesday 18 September 2012
 
Their experienced approach to their art lacks none of the fervour of their early days, and brings a maturity born of many years living with the music that is an integral part of their beings.
 
All the old skills are demonstrated with a new collection of traditional songs and instrumentals.
 
This remarkable pairing played an important part in the tremendous shake up given to British folk music in the middle to late 60's.

Having worked alongside other leading musicians such as Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, Beryl and Roger Marriott and A. L. Lloyd, Dave Swarbrick teamed up with Martin Carthy in 1966.

The result was a new era of English instrumental folk music and a new approach to folk music altogether!
