Spyboy 18 not out - Martin Carthy 50 not out!!



Just want to remind you that Martin Carthy is coming to play for us this weekend

(Old Chapel, Alfriston Sat 28th October at 7.30pm)


For almost fifty 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.


His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers and awards; including an MBE in 1998 and a Lifetime Achievement Award at a star studded 2014 BBC Folk Awards Ceremony.


He is a ballad singer, a story teller, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material.


Perhaps, most significant of all, however, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists on both sides of the Atlantic, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon.


With a back-catalogue that includes trailblazing musical partnerships with Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick, The Imagined Village and his twice nominated Mercury Prize daughter Eliza, Martin Carthy brings his ground-breaking music style to the beautiful setting of the Old Chapel in Alfriston.


Only a handful of seats remain (?18.50) - Order via info_at_spyboy_dot_co_dot_uk and pay on the night
