Twice 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. Their 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 ‘‘Tomorrow Will Follow Today” and “Hidden People’’, fans of folk and 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, The Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have consolidated themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
Local singer Paul Pearson will be our opening act for this concert.
