The trail-blazing father and daughter from the ‘first family of folk’ come together for a very special performance at the Hailsham Pavilion on Saturday, May 10 (7.30pm).

The performance is part of a national tour that finishes up at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s South Bank.

For more than 40 years Martin Carthy (MBE) has been one of folk music’s greatest innovators, and one of its best loved, and at times, most quietly controversial figures.

As well as numerous solo performances there have been musical partnerships with, among others, Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick, The Imagined Village, and his award-winning family, Waterson Carthy.

Eliza Carthy is undoubtedly one of the most engaging performers of her generation.

She has been nominated twice for a Mercury Prize and won innumerable accolades during a career, that has seen her performing and recording with a diverse array of artists that include, Paul Weller, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Nick Cave and Joan Baez.
