Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman are one of the most popular and respected acts on the British acoustic music scene, 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.

The duo were signed to a major label when they were still teenagers, and have since been recognised nationally for their talents, having twice won Best Duo at the prestigious BBC Folk Awards (in 2013 and 2016).

They were absent from the scene for almost a decade before their highly-acclaimed 'Hidden People' was released in 2012; Sean was busy touring the world with brother Seth´s band, whilst Kathryn remained at home in Devon bringing up the couple’s twin daughters. Sean produced albums for many acts including Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Imelda May and Bellowhead.

Now, after nearly two decades in music, the pair have a strong reputation for their live performances, which bring a feeling of warmth, inclusivity and informality. Kathryn´s sublime vocals and piano accompaniment merge seamlessly with Sean´s deft and inventive guitar playing.

The couple provide a guaranteed enjoyable evening's entertainment for all ages and, living in a rural area themselves (Dartmoor), they understand the importance of bringing live entertainment to local communities.
