Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy MBE
Saw Eliza and dad at Bury Met recently and they were awesome (to coin a phrase). Her fiddle playing is so incredible especially when accompanied or accompanying Martin's equally amazing guitar finger picking. Lovely foot-stomping rhythms and twirls.

Congratulations on the honour Eliza (and to me it's the recognition of the honour that counts, not the somewhat unfortunate title) I and many, many others already knew she was greeeeaaate anyway - as Vin Garbutt would say :-)

Going to see her dad and Swarb in Bury in September. Am sure D.S was a great mentor to Eliza as a child. Has he bin duly honoured yet ?
