Martin & Eliza Carthy with support from The Drystones


Cecil Sharp House, London

The good Doctor Martin Carthy and his twice Mercury nominated daughter Eliza Carthy, join forces to perform songs from their first duo album ever, a CD of traditional material entitled THE ELEPHANT, which was released in May 2014 on Topic Records.

Martin is a legendary ballad singer and guitarist who has influenced a generations of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, while Eliza has been twice-nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a multiple-award winner at the BBC Radio Two Folk awards.

Supported by The Drystones

The Drystones are two twenty-one year olds from Somerset playing a lively mix of their own interpretations of traditional folk tunes and original compositions. Very accomplished on violin, guitar and whistle at Glastonbury Festival 2013 they were Steve Lamacq's "recommendation of the day". For just two people they make a lot of sound!
