Traditional and contemporary folk from the British Isles

MARTIN CARTHY ~ SIGNS OF LIFE TSCD503

Perhaps only Martin Carthy would open a folk album with a Bee Gees songs, let alone continue with pieces from Elvis Presley, Hoagy Carmichael and Bob Dylan, mixed in with such timeless traditional songs as Sir Patrick Spens and The Wife of Usher’s Well. Martin also revisits a classic from his repertoire – the remarkable and chilling ballad Prince Heathen. Eliza Carthy plays fiddle on four songs.

“Human emotions are rarely delivered with such guile and profundity.” Mojo
“A subtle masterpiece.” ★★★★★ The Guardian
