Edmond Is Eliza Carthy really that good? (161* d) RE: Is Eliza Carthy really that good? 01 Aug 07

In my anything but humble opinion, Eliza, coming from the background and parentage she does, might have had more to prove than another musician of her undoubted talent.

For me, she has done that in spades. I had the privilege of seeing (and hearing) her in the Big Session. Other second generation musicians in this were Rose Kemp (Maddy Prior's daughter) ; Benji Kirkpatrick, and again IMABHO, they two are gifted musicians, as is Eliza.

I have followed and damn near worshipped Martin Carthy since October 9th 1966 - my "Sam Larner" moment. Prior to this I played bass in a rock group, so I might perhaps be biased.

I wouldn't just cross the road to see Eliza - I'd travel miles.

Seems to me that Kampervan and his ilk are begrudging buggers. Grow up !
