More About Martin Carthy & John Doyle Ballad Singing Workshop/Potluck/Concert

A powerhouse pairing of two musicians who have shaped the face of traditional music on both sides of the Atlantic.

Martin Carthy
For more than 50 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. Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife (Norma Waterson) and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums.
"Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all" — Q Magazine
Martin is a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric guitarist, and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. His settings of traditional songs have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2014, Martin received a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

John Doyle
Name many of the most notable recordings and/or performers in Irish music and it's a fair bet that John Doyle had something to do with them. Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers, Karan Casey, Solas, Michael Black, Mary Black; the trio of McCusker, McGoldrick and Doyle; The Teetotalers (Martin Hayes, Kevin Crawford, John Doyle); and now Usher's Island (Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Mike McGoldrick, Paddy Glackin and John Doyle). These are just a very few of the stellar artists for whom John Doyle's signature guitar sound, singing or songwriting is essential.
"seemingly endless streams of magic in his playing, composing, performing and producing"
John went on the road as a pro at 16 with his group Chanting House. His next ensemble, Solas (with Seamus Egan, John Williams, Karan Casey and Winifred Horan) took the folk and Celtic music worlds by storm, in no small part due to John's powerhouse rhythmic guitar style and innovative arrangements. John has gone on to perform and tour with other greats in the Folk, Celtic and Bluegrass worlds — as music director for folk icon Joan Baez, guitarist for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Eileen Ivers, Tim O’Brien (John was included on Tim’s 2006 Grammy-award winning CD, Fiddler's Green), Linda Thompson, Kate Rusby, Cathie Ryan, Cherish the Ladies, and many others.
