Live Music at the Mill

Author: Kathryn Hunter Published: 1st July 2019 21:04

Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all’ Q MagazineArguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all’ Q MagazineLive music is back at Towcester Mill Brewery later this month with a ticketed gig featuring Martin Carthy who won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 'Lifetime Achievement Award' in 2014.
 
In conjunction with Cutting Edge Music, the gig will be held on Friday 19 July 2019 in the Brewery's Malt Room. Tickets are available online at www.towcestermillbrewery.co.uk and are priced at £12.50 (incl booking fee). Half the tickets have been sold already so make sure you book now!
 
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 have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels was the latest.
 
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.
 
‘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
 
Doors to the Malt Room bar open at 7pm, concert starts at 8pm. There will also be hand-stretched wood fired pizzas available on the night served outside the Mill from 5pm-8pm.
