Martin Carthy:
Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music's greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures.His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it. Trailblazing musical partnerships with, amongst others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife (Norma Waterson) and daughter Eliza Carthy have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels (Topic TSCD527) is the latest.
Whether in the folk clubs (which he continues to champion), on the concert stage or making TV appearances (he was the subject of the acclaimed `Originals' music documentary strand on BBC 2) - there are few roles that Martin Carthy hasn't played. He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic & electric guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. He always prefers to follow an insatiable musical curiosity rather than cash in on his unrivalled position. Perhaps, most significant of all, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.
In June 1998 he was appointed an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. He was named Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in
2002, and again in 2005 when he also won the award for Best Traditional Track for 'amous Flower of Serving Men. In the 2007 Folk Awards Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick won Best Duo. In 2008 he won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Traditional Track for Cold Haily Rainy Night alongside Eliza Carthy and Chris Wood as part of The Imagined Village.

From early days on the folk circuit, singer and concertina player, Miles turned professional in 1976. From 1977-85 he also played with the Suffolk Bell and Horseshoe Band, and was a founder member of the New Mexborough English Concertina Quartet from 1984-88. From 1988 until 1992, he toured occasionally, both at home and abroad, with songwriter Richard Grainger, in addition to pursuing his solo career. The Dunmow Flitch, recorded with his then wife Sue Miles, was an album of traditional English music, released on the now defunct Sweet Folk All label, and featured Jez Lowe. Home Routes includes 'The Alimony Run', a bitter song by Pete Coe about marital seperation and some of it's consequences. Playing For Time included a variety of songs such as Lennon and McCartney's 'Yesterday'/'All My Loving', and 'From Four Until Late' by blues guitarist Robert Johnson, as well as more traditional material, showing the range of the English concertina. Dick has established respect for himself on the folk circuit, where he is still much in demand as a soloist. In 1990, Miles recorded On Muintavara with the Irish group Suifinn, and then performed with them from 1991-92. During his career Miles has appeared on Folk On Two on BBC radio, on numerous occasions, and has performed at both the Festival Hall, and Purcell Rooms on London's South Bank. Miles now lives in Ireland and tours regularly in Ireland, England and Holland. Apart from still working occasionally with Richard Grainger, he also plays with Ril-Gan-Anim, in addition to his solo work.
