One thought on “Happy May 21 Birthday Martin Carthy, 79

  1. Martin Carthy forgot more about playing the guitar than 99% of musicians ever knew. Too bad he’s never gotten the airplay and exposure on this side of the Atlantic that he has always deserved. Happy birthday to one of the – indeed – giants of folk.
