Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy MBE
When Martin Carthy accepted his MBE he made it clear that he was accepting it on behalf of all the traditional singers who have never been similarly recognised. He also said he felt it was an acknowledgement for traditional music, rather than of him as an individual. No doubt Norma and Eliza would express similar sentiments.
