10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters
The first comprehensive collection of British folk legend Martin Carthy, entitled The Carthy Chronicles, has just been released by Free Reed Records in England as a 4-CD box set. We will be celebrating Carthy's immense contributions to folk music for the past 40 years by programming selections from this superb set during the next several months. Carthy will be touring in America in June. The set comes with a splendid 100-page book of biographical notes, recollections of friends and colleagues, detailed track notes and plenty of photographs. For this show, we selected cuts from the set's "Classic Carthy" disc.
We also dipped back into the past for several selections from otgers and offered up instrumental music from guitarist Ed Gerhard and Celtic fiddler Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, all of whom will be appearing in the region.
