Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships. Twice recent winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo – 2016 & 2013 – the couple’s intimacy and strength of passion on stage have won them many fans and an enviable reputation as ‘Songwriters par excellence’- (fRoots), whose greatly varied original songs cover such subjects as wicked mermaids, Norwegian legends and a lonely whale.
Building upward from their last two highly praised albums ‘Hidden People’ & ‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today’, fans of acoustic music can only wonder where this leading couple will choose to turn next.
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.
Tickets for this show are also available over the counter at the village shop in St Madoes, Bandwagon in Perth and Groucho's in Dundee.
