Subject: RE: Martin Carthy - general discussion
I met Martin at a folk club in Birmingham as a very nervous Acapella singer only weeks into my Folk career, he was so encouraging and helpful. Ten years later I opened a Folk club near Wolverhampton, I hadn't been in touch with him, but the first person through the door on opening night was Martin Carthey. A true Folk Gentleman. Dererves the Knighthood that Ewan McColl was denied
