Thread Name: Martin Carthy - general discussion
Subject: RE: Martin Carthy

Lonnie Donegan obviously had a huge impact on British music. I would however suggest that his greatest impact was in terms of causing us to re-examine our own music.

The electrification of folk music was surely inspired by the Beatles, listened to by Dylan and The Byrds?

Besides, this is supposed to be a Carthy thread! I hate this much lauded 'thread creep'
