My guest this week is the fabulous Charlotte Carrivick. Charlotte's one of my favourite guitarists and we've been chatting about getting this interview done since July, so I'm thrilled we finally managed to find a time to record it.
It would be quicker to tell you which instruments Charlotte doesn't play than which she does, but she's probably best known for her guitar and mandolin playing, including her wonderful Flatpick of the Week series on Instagram and YouTube.
We talk about the influence David Grier and Matt Flinner had (and have) on her playing, her arrangements of well know (and not so well known) fiddle tunes, the challenges of touring with two children under 12 months of age and, of course, her current project, all-female bluegrass group Midnight Skyracer.
