Jazz Musician Gilberto Gil

From musical revolutionary to international pop star to beloved statesman, Gilberto Gil has “surfed the world while digging deep into Brazilian roots” (JazzTimes). As a founding member of
Brazil’s Tropicalia movement, Gil reinvented Brazilian popular music by combining Beatle-esque psychedelia, art rock, and Brazilian roots rhythms. Since returning to Brazil from his London
exile in the early 1970s, Gil has held center stage as a charismatic performer with multiple Grammys, six gold records, four platinum singles, and more than five million records sold. Expect a party with the master of Brazilian pop.

Gilberto Gil is coming to the Flynn Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $10 for UVM students.

Concert: Martin and Eliza Carty


Martin Carthy, one of the most influential figures in British traditional music and his daughter, Eliza, a renowned performer in her own right, will be performing at the All Souls Interfaith Gathering 291 Bostwick Road in Shelburne on Saturday, April 18 at 7:30 pm. This concert is being presented by Young Tradition Vermont. Tickets are on sale Adult tickets are $20.  Children 12 and under are $5.00.

Martin Carthy is an English folk singer and guitarist who has inspired contemporaries such as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon and later artists such as Richard Thompson. Martin is the father of Eliza Carthy. He is a renowned solo performer of traditional songs in a very distinctive style, accompanying himself on his Martin 000-18 acoustic guitar; his style is marked by the use of alternative tunings (notably CGCDGA), and a strongly percussive picking style that emphasizes the melody. In June 1998 he was appointed an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. He was named Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2002, and again in 2005 when he also won the award for Best Traditional Track for ‘Famous Flower of Serving Men‘. In the 2007 Folk Awards Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick won “Best duo”. In 2014 he was awarded the ‘Lifetime achievement award’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Eliza Carthy is an English folk musician known for singing and playing fiddle.  Twice-nominated for a prestigious Nationwide Mercury Music Prize with 1998’s ‘Red Rice’ and 2003’s ‘Anglicana’ Eliza is also the winner of more than five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and has presented awards for MOJO magazine and been invited to judge at both the Q Awards and the Ivor Novello Awards. In 2003 she became the first English traditional musician to be nominated for a BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music. In 2012 she was awarded the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers and this year (2014) she has been awarded an MBE for her services to folk music in the Queens birthday honors list. She is the daughter of Martin Carthy and singer Norma Waterson.
