Forest Folk
 - a great folk club in Hampshire



Next event:           

Monday 19 February 2018 - Martin & Eliza Carthy

Martin Carthy is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generation 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.  For more than 50 years, Martin has been one of the 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 has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance (www.eliza-carthy.com).
