Subject: Martin Carthy
As we approach the millennium, lots of charts are appearing: the most influential singer, the best dulcimer player, the best 'blues' guitarist, and so on.

Mutcat is not adverse to such speculation.

If we're going to engage in such idle speculation, let's celebrate Martin Carthy.

This may sound somewhat off the wall, but if it wasn't for Martin, folk music as we know today, would be very different. If it wasn't for Martin, mudcat may not exist.
