Biography

Waterson:Carthy are a British folk group comprising Norma Waterson on vocals, her husband Martin Carthy on guitar, their daughter Eliza Carthy on fiddle and Tim van Eyken on melodeon. Tim joined the group after 1996 when Saul Rose left the group. In 2007 Saul Rose has returned in place of Tim. Martin and Norma tour as a duo once a year, and are members of The Watersons.

Individually, the band members are tremendously revered English folk musicians in their own right, but together they form one of the most sought bands available. Commonly found to be headlining folk festivals through Europe, they are known for their welcoming manner and determination to keep English folk music alive.

They were awarded Best Group in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2000.

    I just bought the first Waterson:Carthy album at the iTunes store, and one of the tracks is titled The Grey C**k. The song is already haunting, but this lends it an extra frisson, I find.

    Newish release: Holy Heathens And The Old Green Man is a wonderful collection of Winter Solstice (related) songs to vanquish the latent Noddy Holder in any of us.
