Martin Carthy live in Doncaster, 2013

Here are three new audio clips from a live recording of Martin’s solo Roots Music Club gig at the Doncaster Deaf School on 29 November 2013. I’m posting them here on the occasion of Martin’s 76th birthday.

Two of the clips (My Son John and the interview) were previously unavailable whilst When I Was A Little Boy was included on a podcast from Jonti’s Roots & Acoustic Music Show on SineFM in December 2013. Jonti Willis conducts the interview and asked me to contribute to the Q&A so if you listen carefully you’ll hear my question to Martin at around 16:45 (there were no mics on the audience so the audio for these questions has been boosted and is audible but not always very clear).

Live sound for all the clips was by Stuart Palmer and the photographs are by me.

The full podcast including most of this gig (minus the interview) is here:

Oh, and Happy Birthday Martin!
