Programme Update: Unfortunately, due to illness, John Kirkpatrick will no longer be able to perform on Friday night. However, we are delighted to say that Martin Carthy will still  be performing in what is now one of his rare solo gigs.

National treasures and long-time collaborators Martin Carthy (guitar/voice) and John Kirkpatrick (squeezebox/voice) are leading interpreters of English traditional folk music. For more than 50 years, BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ winner, Martin has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators and the enduring enjoyment of playing with John shines through in their performances, which are always warm, natural and charismatic. Pure English folk pedigree! 

‘Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all’
