Winner of Best Duo at the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

After 20 years on the British folk scene Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman are names that have become synonymous with quality. Their live shows are an eclectic and intimate experience, and their reputation has been solidified having been voted ‘Best Duo’ in the Spiral Earth Awards 2015 and the BBC Folk Awards in 2013.

As songwriters the duo’s songs cover subjects as diverse as Russian mermaids to lonely whales, political dissent to Scandinavian seductresses, all alongside traditional themes of love, lust and murder.

Both come with an enviable folk music pedigree. Yorkshire girl Kathryn is lauded as one of the finest singers of her generation, while guitarist Sean is the eldest of three musical brothers Sam (married to Irish singer Cara Dillon) and Seth Lakeman.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see two of the British folk scene’s most accomplished performers.
