Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
Plus support from The Low Countries and The Lighthouse Keepers
Two of the British folk scenes most accomplished performers, Kathryn and Sean have graced stages the world over in a number of guises, however, the intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo, combined with an eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat for any listener.
The Roberts-Lakeman name has become synonymous with "quality" during their musical careers which started when they were signed to a major label as teenagers. Now after nearly two decades in music, Kathryn's sublime vocals merge seemlesly with Sean's deft and inventive live guitar work on stage - and his award-winning sonic skills in the studio. In addition to his chart-topping hit records for brother Seth Lakeman, Sean has this year alone produced albums or tracks with The Levellers, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Imelda May and Bellowhead... as well as a string of other folk/acoustic acts.Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have established themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
