#MC50 : 1983 Peel Session

Posted by Kevin Boyd, 1 February 2015

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Martin Carthy’s debut album I’m continuing the #MC50 project where I’m creating a new YouTube video every month this year. Each video includes rare or unreleased tracks from Martin’s career.

February’s offering includes tracks from Martin’s final session for the BBC John Peel Show split over two separate videos. Please comment and share…

Martin Carthy celebrated his 70th birthday (a week early) at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on Saturday 14 May 2011. Martin’s guests were Tom Robinson, Eliza Carthy and Dave Swarbrick and I was lucky to be given permission to photograph the event.

Many thanks to Harriet Simms at Glass Veiling PR and Alan Bearman for arranging my pass.
