gnomad Martin Carthy on a Desert Island (136* d) RE: Martin Carthy on a Desert Island 08 Jan 13

There is a precedent for choosing exclusively from his own work (cannot remember offhand who it was did that) and he would have better grounds than many to do so, but somehow I suspect he will prove more modest than that.

His problem will be less what to include than what to leave out, same as most of us I should think, but enormously multiplied. I look forward to hearing his choices, and am sure his interview will be interesting. As to just what he'll pick, I make only one prediction: I'll bet he has some surprises in store.
