Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman in Concert
Saturday 26th January 2018 - 7:30 pm
Crich Glebe Field Centre (DE4 5EU)
Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships. Bonded by an unseen alchemy, they have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative, award winning song writing and musicianship.
This Dartmoor-based husband and wife duo has twice won the coveted Best Duo title at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2016 & 2013). Kathryn and Sean consistently deliver assured, distinctive performances. They have travelled, and performed around the world, before deciding to return to their English folk roots, and gig as an acoustic duo.
Kathryn and Sean’s intimacy, and strength of passion on stage, has won them many fans and an enviable reputation as ‘songwriters par excellence’. They have never been trapped in a groove. They are always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with their self-penned material, which reels from the bitter to the sweet; the wry to the sad; the political to the passive.
Suitable for those aged 10 and over.
