The Unbroken Line with Eliza Carthy
BBC Radio Scotland. Available to listen to on the BBC iplayer for the next 23 days

Eliza Carthy grew up in a folk family in Yorkshire: her mother was part of The Waterstons, who found old ballads from the Dales and brought them back to life in the folk clubs and festivals of the UK and beyond. Her father, Martin Carthy, established Steeleye Span and has been singing ballads and touring for decades as a soloist. It's no surprise then Eliza herself was destined to become a professional musician. She spent years touring the folk festivals with her parents, including in Scotland. And as an adult, she lived in Edinburgh for over a decade. So she has a particular affinity with the Scottish folk scene.

In this programme, Eliza looks at the impact the Scottish scene has had on her and her family's approach to music making over the years. And she discovers what English players and performers can learn from the tradition here to promote a healthy, vibrant and sustainable future involving all the generations.

"Her father, Martin Carthy, established Steeleye Span" - really? I'd like to hear what Mr Hutchins would say about that, especially as Martin wasn't on the first Steeleye album...

Mark, you need to be able to distinguish between "Tyger" Hutchings and "Rabbit" Hutchins (He He He!)

a bit nit picking. Martin C was there in the general sweep of things, I wouldn't begrudge the Carthy gang being on the steam radio. I sometimes feel like I was the only one alive back then.

Listen to Pointless - half of them nowadays think Harold Wilson was before the first world war.

Quick look at the website. Who are the Waterstons?

A well known folk singing book shop?

Still, Eliza's programme i thought was rather good. Lots of things not covered, of course -- but thoughtful. I am glad some of the interviewees were given space and time to explore and explain what they were saying.
