Martin & Eliza Carthy – Builth Wells
February 21 @ 7:30 pm£16
The good Doctor Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury nominated daughter Eliza Carthy, join forces. Martin is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generations of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, while Eliza has been twice-nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards.
Martin has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. Eliza is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.
