jacko@nz Martin Carthy is good/crap -discuss!! (41) RE: MARTIN CARTHY 17 Apr 01


I first saw Martin in 1960, at the Troubador I think it was. I caught up with him next in New Zealand some 27 years later.

We sat in the kitchen and he taught me 'Hamlet' his way then said "but with you're accent you'll be able to do it the way it was written"

Fate intervened at this point and the same week, out of the blue, I received a copy of Adam Mc's original from my sister, still in Edinburgh

You don't have to like his style, but the man's ability and integrity are quite beyond criticism as far as i'm concerned
