Two by Martin Carthy

I hope to see Martin Carthy live one day; there are very few performers for whom I have a greater respect. Here’s his take on a couple of traditional songs: ‘The Trees They Do Grow High’ and ‘My Son John’. The second has been ‘tweaked’, as he puts it, to situate it in a contemporary situation.
