For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music's greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.  Trailblazing musical partnerships with (amongst others) Steeleye Span, Dave Swarbrick and his award-winning wife, Norma Waterson have resulted in more than 40 albums, but Martin has only recorded 10 solo albums, of which the much anticipated Waiting for Angels was the latest (2004).

Martin also performs with his daughter Eliza Carthy, a member of the family group Waterson:Carthy, which also features wife Norma Waterson. Waterson:Carthy has released seven albums between 1994 - 2006 and in May of 2014 , Martin and Eliza released their first album together, "The Moral of the Elephant."

"A late-career gem for Martin and a mid-career milestone for Eliza, the first family of British folk have managed to deliver a classic in its field." - Timothy Monger, All Music
