Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman

Whimple Victory Hall

Friday 14th October 2016

(Support from Tina Bridgman)

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

Two of the British folk scene's 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 ever evolving eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat for any listener.

Twin daughters and a folk-rock whirlwind forced Kathryn Roberts (Vocals / Piano / Woodwind), and Sean Lakeman (Guitar), to sideline their popular duo performances in the mid noughties. After almost a decade, 2012 saw a spectacular return in conjunction with their critically acclaimed album ‘Hidden People’. Awards and much praise followed and the couple swiftly re-established themselves as one of the top British folk duos working today.

With their fourth and most successful album to date ’Tomorrow Will Follow Today’, Kathryn and Sean’s reputation for ‘quality’ was cemented. More awards and plaudits followed. Most gratifying for the pair was a growing acknowledgement as ‘Songwriters par excellence’ – fRoots.

An obvious dedication to their craft mixed with the acute ability to draw a listener effortlessly and intimately into their world  has led to their shows being described as “An absolute masterclass in how to do it right.” – Festivalsforall.com

With a story that includes over 20 years of music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
