Trad night: Thomas McCarthy

- (Doors: 7:00pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Presented by Mike Norris, former EFDSS chair and host of the Classic Folk Radio show, these unamplified traditional performances will take place in the intimate Storrow Hall at Cecil Sharp House. Enjoy tales of love and lust, incest and murder, humour and tragedy, sung by some of today's finest traditional singers.

Thomas McCarthy is a man steeped in Irish song, intoxicated by the music and passionate in his sensitivity towards the tradition.

He comes from a considerable dynasty of traditional singers, song-makers and musicians, and grew up surrounded by the singing of his late mother, her father and aunts and uncles. Having spent his life learning the songs of his family, in 2008 Thomas sang publicly for the first time at the folk club at Cecil Sharp House. By the following year, he had sung at the most prominent folk festivals and clubs in Ireland and England and had appeared on BBC Radio.
