MAG (inactive) Martin Carthy is good/crap -discuss!! (41) RE: MARTIN CARTHY 18 Apr 01


After his concert in this area last year (for which I drove 60 miles, I might add) I approached MC with my feelings about Mill O'Tifty's Annie -- that I think songs like this are important to preserve, in that they show how people don't really die of a broken heart, like in the watered down versions. Annie gets beaten to death by her family for refusing to marry someone who will raise the family's social standing. That said, I have a terrible time listening to them, and Prince Heathen and Bonnie Susie too, thank you very much.

this man who had just finished an intense solo concert spoke to me for about half an hour about these songs and our mutual concerns in them. He's a hero.
