Martin Carthy & Eliza Carthy – The Moral of the Elephant

The Moral of the Elephant (Topic Records) is the title of the new album by the prominent father and daughter English folk duo Martin Carthy & Eliza Carthy.

Produced by Eliza, Martin and Oliver Knight, this album picks up the essence of a continuing singing and performing family tradition.

The songs featured include rearrangements of traditional pieces ‘Her Servant Man’, the ‘Grand Conversation On Napoleon’, ‘Bonny Moorhen'; re-interpretations of the more modern ‘Happiness’ and Michael Marra’s ‘Monkey Hair’ as well as a new Eliza Carthy composition set to the poetry of John Godfrey Saxe – ‘The Elephant’. There is also a tribute to Mike Waterson, using his unique arrangement of ‘Died For Love’ to close the album.
