Folk duo to play at three Derbyshire venues

One of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman will be entertaining their fans at Tansley, Crich and Pleasley in the next few weeks. 

Duos come and duos go. . . and some nurture and fine-tune their art and watch it grown into something totally original, captivating and award-winning. 

Bonded by an unseen alchemy Kathryn and Sean have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.

Whether on stage or in the recording studio Sean Lakeman is a tour-de-force of modern folk music. As well as producing all four of the duo’s albums his production credits include the likes of the Levellers, Seth Lakeman (his younger brother), Frank Turner, Billy Bragg, Imelda May and Bellowhead.
