A little bit later than I would have preferred, but here are a few shots from Martin and Dave’s gig at the Met Theatre in Bury on 11 September.


#MC50 : Carthy & Swarbrick 1988 BBC Session

1 June 2015

Posted by Kevin Boyd, 1 June 2015

June’s #MC50 YouTube video, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Martin Carthy’s debut solo album, is a session recorded by Martin and Dave Swarbrick in October 1988 at the BBC Pebble Mill studios for the BBC Folk On Two show.

The session was recorded half way through their First Farewell Tour – their first major set of gigs since they had split in 1969 – and includes a number of rare or unique recordings. It was broadcast on 12 October 1988 on BBC Radio 2 and the photos are from their gig in Rotherham the following night (not Sheffield, as the broadcast suggests).

Another September; another Carthy & Swarb tour. Here they are at the Met Theatre in Bury a couple of days ago.

Update: Here are a few more different edits in colour of Martin from the same gig:

As mentioned in an earlier post, Martin has recently been playing his new PRS guitar on tour with Dave Swarbrick. I got a chance to see the pair at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and, as usual, took a few shots of the gig. Afterwards Martin was kind enough to sit for a moment while I took a few shots of him playing the new instrument and some close-ups that I’ve used to update the earlier post.
