Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman Tour and EP

Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman continue touring October through to December in support of their new 8 track EP entitled SAVED FOR A RAINY DAY.

“Over the last few years there have been several cover songs we have performed live and never got round to recording. Along with a couple of our own originals that didn’t ‘fit’ with our previous releases. These have often been requested on CD and, subsequently, ‘Saved For A Rainy Day’ has become a limited edition of rarities.”

2016 saw Kathryn and Sean again voted ‘Best Duo’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and later in the year pair headed to India and also to Spain for shows.

Now firmly established as one of the folk-scene’s busiest and most respected duos, the husband and wife team will hit the road from early March onwards to preview new material that will feature on their next full album.

Now 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 quality acoustic music can catch a preview of the duo’s exciting new material on their forthcoming spring tour.  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.
