A very special Teatime Concert as Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury nominated daughter Eliza Carthy join forces to perform songs from their duo album The Moral of the Elephant.
For more than 50 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music’s greatest and best loved innovators. He’s a ballad singer, a ground-breaking guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.
Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation. Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and winner of innumerable other accolades over a 20 year career, Eliza has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists including, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Patrick Wolf and Bob Neuwirth. More than most, Eliza Carthy has revitalised folk music and captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performance.
