National treasures Martin Carthy & John Kirkpatrick embark on a rare UK duo tour.
These two leading interpreters of English folk traditions are long-time collaborators in a variety of seminal musical projects. Their enduring enjoyment of playing with each other shines through in their performances – warm, natural and charismatic. Pure English folk pedigree!
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.
John is one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, performing solo, in duos, acoustic groups and electric bands, and has established an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso as well as a leading interpreter of English folk music.
