we welcome Martin Carthy as our guest!
Lifetime Achievement Award – BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014
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.
His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.
Trailblazing musical partnerships include, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife Norma Waterson and daughter Eliza.
Whether in the folk clubs, on the concert stage or making TV appearances, there are few roles that Martin Carthy hasn't played.
He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material.
He always prefers to follow an insatiable musical curiosity rather than cash in on his unrivalled position. Perhaps, most significant of all,
are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.
"Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all." - Q Magazine
"Carthy is a master of the ballad of substance, songs that tell stories, whether they are traditional, his own or from contemporary writers." - The Telegraph

It is over three years since our very dear friend Pam Colls passed away.
Co-founder of the Dartford Folk Club, with her husband Alan, they ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
The Dartford Folk Club continues to run as usual, with Alan and a small team of original members, in memory of and as a legacy to Pam's amazing love for music.
