  • This is a rare opportunity to hear ballad singer, folksong scholar and Guitar God Martin Carthy in an online concert on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 3 pm (EDT). The concert will be streamed live from Falcon Audio Visual Arts Studio, Whitby, England, via YouTube.

    Martin Carthy is a musical trailblazer who cannot be pigeonholed. His innovative guitar style, dedication to tradition and painstaking research has influenced generations of musicians and scholars. Carthy has the knack of reinterpreting traditional material in a manner that is startlingly original yet completely true to the tradition. It’s also breathtakingly beautiful.
