You don’t need to explore the history of the British folk revival for very long before getting a measure of the enduring influence of Martin Dominic Forbes Carthy, MBE. He’s been a towering presence over various aspects of the scene since being electrified as a 17-year-old in the early 1960s by the traditional singing of an elderly Norfolk herring fisherman called Sam Larner. Carthy went on to be a master guitarist and a boldly individual song interpreter; an electric folk pioneer; a central figure in numerous, diverse bands; and, very occasionally, a formidable writer of political song.
