Hitchin Folk Club's guests this Sunday (February 5) are Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy and Chris Parkinson.

Norma and Martin have been leading figures in the folk revival since the early 1960s. Martin's remarkable career has been celebrated with an MBE and various BBC Radio 2 music awards including Folk Singer of the Year 2005. He is one of the most admired and best-loved figures in the movement and was the subject of a BBC documentary.

Norma was a member of the Watersons, the most profoundly influential harmony vocal group of the time on the English folk scene. She has also been made an MBE, for services to English music, and is a fellow recipient of Radio 2 awards.

They will be joined on stage at the Sun Hotel in Hitchin by Chris Parkinson, a former member of the highly acclaimed The House Band. For more information ring Maureen Jones on 01462 812391 or visit www.hitchinfolkclub.co.uk
